Clinic Exploration Program

The Clinic Exploration Program (CEP), housed within the Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography, offers students the opportunity to shadow medical professionals on the job in many of NSU’s medical and health clinics. Program participants gain a broad perspective that shows how various medical fields work together and a practical, up-close review of several medical career options.


All undergraduate students may take part in CEP, no matter what major they pursue. Each rotation lasts two hours per week, for three weeks. Because this is a volunteer program, member commitments are flexible and voluntary. For more information, refer to the CEP Orientation Packet or email cep@nova.edu.
