You organized your information well and from my point of view, it is accurate.
To answer at least two of your questions...
Will Deaconess assist you with finding a clinical site?
While the responsibility to find a facility willing to offer you precepted support lies on you, DCN has a clinical liason who works with you to put everything in motion. The liason gave me advise on who to talk to and what to say, DCN provided information regarding the program to give to the facility, and they did all the contract paperwork and negotiation that was needed to finalize everything.
Then some of my classmates that could not find clinical support in their local area, flew out to St Louis to complete it there...so that is an option too.
How accessible are the online instructors?
As with a traditional program it is different from one professor to the other. Some prefer a phone call, while others like to communicate by email. So far I have not had been in a position where I could not get the answers that I needed. We have time at the beginning and end of each weekly chat to go over questions. We have a webboard for posting questions to everyone, and then email to direct questions to specific people. So far all of my professors have given us their phone number at home too.
I hope this is helpful!
