- Feb 21 by ckh23I can only speak for the program which I am in and it is an integrated program. So far, I like that it has been integrated because you get exposure to the OR early and are able to start developing your clinical skills. I have also found that I am able to apply certain things that I have learned in class into clinical practice. One example is airway anatomy and intubating. It is one thing to read and learn about it and practice in sim lab, but to actually start to DL and see the anatomy for yourself and what it is like to put the tube through the vocal cords is something else.
I'm sure everyone has a different opinion, but I have been very happy that my program is integrated.
