This degree program is a four-year, full-time program. During the first three years of the program, students will be in residence on the Amherst campus and will complete the required and elective course work, both on-campus and off-campus clinical rotations, and a capstone research project. During the fourth year of the program, students will be placed in an intensive off-campus clinical residency.
