Clinical Students

Thank you for your interest in a clinical rotation at Carteret Health. Carteret Health uses MyClinicalExchange to schedule and coordinate rotations for NP, PA, DO, MD, CRNA, Medical Students, Dietitian, Nursing (undergraduate and graduate), Social Work, Recreational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Exercise Science, Physical Therapy (PTA, PT, DPT), and Occupational Therapy.

Before a rotation can be requested, confirmation of an affiliation agreement between requesting school and Carteret Health is required. Please have your school coordinator reach out to studentprograms@carterethealth.org if an updated agreement is needed.

Once agreement is in place, the school instructor/coordinator will submit a rotation request for approval by the hospital. Requests must be submitted at least two weeks prior to rotation start date to allow plenty of time for students to complete the rotation compliance checklist. After approval, the coordinator will assign student/s to the rotation and student/s will begin submitting their information.

For help with MyClinicalExchange technical issues, please contact support@myclinicalexchange.com. For other questions regarding programs at Carteret Health and onboarding, contact studentprograms@carterethealth.org.
