Students in pre-doctoral and clinical post-doctoral programs are required to purchase instrument kits from the university during the program. Used instruments or instruments purchased outside the university are not acceptable. 4-year pre-doctoral students are issued two instrument kits, the first kit is issued at the beginning of the first year and the second kit is issued at the beginning of the second year. 2-year pre-doctoral (Advanced Standing) students and clinical post-doctoral students are issued instruments kits in their first year only. The cost of pre-doctoral and post-doctoral instrument kits varies by program.
