To Be Eligible For Graduation, An Intern Must Have:

  • Attended the required number of scheduled days
  • Successfully completed all lecture and clinical rotation proficiency and competency requirements
  • Demonstrated ethical behavior in their professional conduct

At graduation, you will receive a certificate and are eligible for certification by national or state agencies. Information on the various certifying agencies is supplied during the clinical year. The intern decides whether to become certified, and by which agency. Certification is a means of verifying career-entry competence; it is desirable in many job circumstances and in pursuing post-graduate education. Successful completion of a national certification exam is not required for graduation from the program.   If you are from an affiliated university, you are eligible to receive a degree from that institution. The awarding of the certificate or degree is not contingent upon successfully passing a certification examination.
