    Testimonials

    The program has opened numerous doors from me. I was fortunate to have placements that dealt with various populations that provided excellent experience. I love the balance the program offers; it develops necessary clinical skills while providing educational demands of a degree. As a previous university student, I learned a lot of theory. Unfortunately, that theory was never put into practice. At. St. Lawrence College I gained 1,100 hours of clinical practice in a supervised setting. The high standard of the program allows students to develop their research and clinical skills. The professors offer a supportive learning environment and are very approachable individuals who want to help you succeed.
