The PCE is a fast-paced, rigorous program that requires students to be free of all clinical responsibilities during the 7-week period. This enables students to fully commit to the intense, yet very rewarding curriculum. In addition to three classes daily, students often have additional afternoon computer labs. The PCE involves a considerable amount of homework; 30% of last summer’s participants spent, on average, over 20 hours each week on homework assignments.
