hosted student and technician interns from all over the Northeast.

in-depth case discussion and teaching. We expect externs to be heavily
involved with diagnostic and treatment decisions, to scrub into
surgeries, perform client communication, do procedures under direct
supervision and to function as much like a clinician as possible.
