Summer Practicum

You’ll be responsible for any incidental costs associated with your summer practicum at a simulation center near you. If you cannot make arrangements at a home center and choose to complete the summer-term practicum at WISH in Seattle, you’ll be responsible for the booking and full cost of all travel and living expenses.
