Some of our classes are currently available in hybrid or online formats and by 2020, all of the remaining upper division CLM major courses will be available in an online format for full-time working students. Additionally, courses may be offered in semesters other than the ones listed in the chart above as we transition to the new curriculum.  You will work with your advisor to address any changes that need to be made with your individualized plan.

Practicum Note: For full-time students, Practicums II and III will be taken in the final semester as an immersive experience of 8 weeks of placement in the field. The other classes that semester will include 2 part of term courses before the placement begins (CLM 443 and 444), along with Capstone (CLM 495).  If you work full-time in health care, there is an opportunity to complete the practicum at your place of employment with permission from the Practicum Coordinator and the Director of Undergraduate Studies in Clinical Leadership & Management.  For more information on the practicum, please contact Dr. Karen Clancy, Faculty Practicum Coordinator, at kclancy@uky.edu .
