About the BTG Clinical Program 

Overview


The BTG Clinical Program is an interdisciplinary experience providing students with the opportunity to become more skilled in collaborative community clinical service for underserved populations. As with BTG CHIP, the Clinical Program provides meaningful service to a partnering clinical/community site by allowing the site to access additional human resources (health/social service professions students). Students from multiple health and social service disciplines from across the city may elect to rotate through one of three program experiences.

"The BTG Clinical experience is unique ... What a perspective-broadening program this has been, building knowledge from the internship and seminar series and then putting that knowledge to use in a setting that demonstrated an ideal model of care."
