Real-World Experiences Experiences

“Communication is by far the most critical skill that we work on and develop with the students. What I love most, when having students on rotation with me out in the field and in the clinic providing patient care, is for students to see that this isn’t just drugs—this is the patient as a whole. This is health, wellness, prevention, that it is about the relationships.”–Kam Capoccia, Clinical Professor of Community Care
