Education Opportunities

250 students and residents come to CUHCC annually to complete their continuity clinic, clinical rotations, or field placements. These students & residents come from the School of Dentistry, Medical School (Internal Medicine, Medicine-Pediatrics and Psychiatry), School of Nursing, College of Pharmacy, School of Public Health, and multiple other disciplines.

Over 15,000 hours of educational related activities are provided by faculty and staff.
