Excelling in the Externship is organized logically and presented in a portfolio format for easy student use.  It begins by introducing the purpose and value of the externship. It then explains the expectations of the student in an externship, starting with the interview. Appropriate attitudes, etiquette, and the development of working professional relationships are discussed, as well as clarification on how students should follow instructions and engage in proactive learning. The next section discusses the benefits of externship completion, including externship evaluations and grades. Real-life case studies are presented. The final chapter covers beginning the job search for allied health careers.
