MedQuest College Externship Program
MedQuest College requires all students to participate in an Externship for academic credit. Externships allow students to apply classroom skills towards working with real patients alongside seasoned professionals. MedQuest College has approximately 100 active students in different Externship sites at any given time. Our Externship Coordinators carefully examine each practice to ensure it meets our strict criteria as an adequate learning environment. Upon acceptance, each practice signs an Affiliation Agreement, in which the responsibilities of the site, school and student are clearly outlined.
During their Externship, students are empowered to make professional connections that have proven invaluable. Our graduates transition from their programs with substantially more experience as a result of their real-world training. Most students receive offers of employment immediately upon completion of their program.
If you are a current student and have questions, please email our Externship Coordinator.
