Additional Information for All Applicants

Clinical placements are a joint responsibility of both the student and faculty member. Jefferson sees clinical placement as a partnership. Matriculated students are supported and expected to network in search of a clinical site that meets their clinical and career objectives. In the event that a student is unable to locate a clinical site, progression in the program may be delayed and/or they may be required to travel for available clinical placements.

Demonstration of doula, childbirth education, women's health, public health, international health, lactation consulting, clinical experience, or public health work are all beneficial but not required to apply.
