Summer Experiential/Clinical Programs

Some experiential/clinical programs will begin this summer in an effort to preserve graduation timelines, meet accreditation requirements, and restore services to clients and communities. Those programs approved to resume will be closely screened before starting in order to protect students, staff, faculty, and the greater community with whom they may interact. UMB developed its policy in consultation with the University of Maryland Medical System, which recently issued its policy on student clinical rotations. The deans will share program approvals when they become available.
