I am currently looking into the University of Minnesota but it starts clinicals the first semester. It is only a 24 month program which would be nice but I am a little worried about having clinicals so soon. I like the idea of front loaded didactic programs but the timing at U of M is right for me and my family. Does anyone have any input on programs that throw you right into clinicals. I would especially like some first hand experience if anyone has it to offer. Thanks.
