The general education courses will be completed at Widener University. Some transfer courses will be allowed and the student should contact the advisor at Widener to determine the requirements. Advanced placement or credits for experiential learning are not options.

All courses relating to the DMS portion of the program will be conducted by Crozer-Chester Medical Center (Crozer). The program offers both didactic and clinical components and students must receive a "B" in all DMS courses, both didactic and clinical, or they will be released from the program with no recourse for re-entry. The didactic courses will be held at Crozer’s main campus and the clinical components will be distributed amongst CKHS and its clinical affiliates.
