An essential part of a student’s educational experience at New York College of Health Professions is interning in the academic health care teaching clinics at the college. These teaching clinics offer massage therapy, acupuncture, and herbal consultations at a great value to the public, as well as the treatments performed by senior students interns under the direct supervision of licensed, experienced health care practitioners. See for yourself why over 20000 patients visit each year.
For the community, the clinics provide a cost-effective way for patients to benefit from preventative forms of healthcare and become more familiar with the principles and practices of holistic health. All new patients must download and complete the New Patient Intake Forms prior to their first appointment. This will save time and ensure that the treatment starts on time.
For students, clinic experience is part of the required training, and is completed under the guidance and supervision of licensed health care professionals. Students interning in the clinics learn how to behave as professionals in a health care environment. They are exposed to the responsibilities every practitioner faces, yet retain the support system of their supervisors to guide them in the transformation from student to professions.
The clinics are available at the main campus in Syosset, Long Island, and the Manhattan site at Bellevue Hospital.
