All students are required to complete Computer Based Training modules (CBT’s) annually. Please look for more information from the Admissions Coordinators on how to log in and complete trainings prior to Orientation.
Students must provide their own laptop computers. Please review our computer requirements and suggestions [pdf] for the best educational experience.
Students will need to purchase their own stethoscopes prior to starting school. The only requirement is that the stethoscope must be 2-sided (bell & diaphragm). There is no need to spend hundreds of dollars on one. Consider purchasing the Littman Classic or Littman Cardiology III which usually cost $70 - $170. Anything in this price range will be sufficient.
One white coat will be provided to each member of the class. You will be measured for this at orientation. Your coat will be presented at the White Coat Ceremony. If you wish to purchase an additional coat, you may do so during orientation.
