I missed the April deadline. Am I foreclosed from doing a clinic or externship?

Absolutely not! Spots always remain available in many of our programs. Please email Associate Director Adrienne Smith, to talk about open spots and what programs you are interested in.

What about spring clinics and externships? Do I still need to apply for those in April too?
