Program Curriculum

Students are required to complete a minimum of 41 credits.  The NMAA program is designed to be completed in five semesters and may be taken at sites distant from the main UAMS, SLU, GRU, or UMC campuses.  A flexible degree plan starting in any semester and extending the program up to a maximum of five years may be arranged, although students are strongly encouraged to complete the program in nine or fewer semesters.  The clinical internship courses must be completed in consecutive semesters with at least one didactic course per semester.  Applicants will develop individualized degree plans with the program director when they accept admission.  The courses include:*
