Ambrose students are members of a comprehensive health care and health educational team. Individual attention from knowledgeable instructors prepares students to collaborate with other health care professionals and school personnel after they graduate. Students learn from experienced faculty during observations and work closely with them during research projects. Students also receive direct supervision, which gives them the confidence and freedom they need to grow as practitioners.
Not only do faculty members bring a wide range of experience to the classroom, they stay in practice, working in private clinics and large institutional settings like Genesis Medical Center. They also attend industry conferences at the local, state, and national levels.
