Would make the objective more personal. At the moment it's generic and doesn't really mean anything. Personally I like to Change this section for every job I'm applying to so I can show my passion for that hospital/area. Patient centred, dynamic ect mean nothing to an employer, they are just words anyone could say. Stick to 2-3 sentence max, tell them why you wanna work there and be genuine. It's easy to tell when your not!
I wouldn't have 2 sections labeled leadership. Maybe combine them? Or call one section something else.
clinicals I would write exactly what floor you were on and hour many hours you completed there.
Lastly if you've ever had a job, include it even if it's not in health care. Always looks good working while in school.
