Preparing your application
Prospective applicants should review the Applicant Worksheet for an overview of the requirements.
The application should include:
- Completion of a personal statement
- Reference letters
- Relevant work experience may also warrant consideration.
Complete an interview, by invitation of the Program Director. A final decision on acceptance is made after this interview. The purpose of the interview is two-fold: It enables you to ask questions in order to evaluate the program for your needs and it gives the program personnel a chance to weigh such factors as your motivation and interpersonal skills.
The number of students accepted into this two-year program each year is limited, with selection made on a competitive basis.
