A selected group of students complete their studies at Baptist Hospital in Kendall and may be provided with an opportunity for employment within the Baptist Healthcare system upon completion of the program. Tuition for these highly-qualified and motivated students is substantially reduced. You’ll save over $30,000 in tuition costs and experience clinical learning at one of the most highly-rated health care systems in Florida.
