Outside work

Although outside employment is discouraged, students may be employed on a supplemental basis as long as:

  • It does not interfere with the training program
  • Their academic and clinical performance is satisfactory

Scholarships may be available for those who demonstrate financial need. The Office of Student Financial Aid can provide more details about financial aid and loan deferments.
