Padua MedTrack students are given the unique opportunity to interact with healthcare professionals in a real world healthcare setting. During the summer between their sophomore and junior year, students complete MedTrack Externships, which involve spending 40 hours of clinical observation in the healthcare field of their choice. They compete for prizes for the various assignments.
