The University of New Haven considers learning through hands-on experience to be a critical component of the education process. We strive to successfully match each student with the most appropriate work environment. It’s also a given that all three parties in the relationship — the University of New Haven, the student, and the clinical site — need to devote significant time to make it work. This balancing act, when achieved, results in a quality learning experience that can lead to developing a career-ready professional and employee.
