CHTC is a pathway for ADU students to gain patient contact hours, volunteer, and gain experience in patient care. The two foundational courses will prepare students with the knowledge and skills needed to participate in the internship courses.

Students will work directly with a team of interdisciplinary members from Florida Hospital to gain exposure to how patients are managed post-discharge from the hospital. The student will act as the “eyes and ears” of the healthcare team with their weekly patient/client interactions.


  • ENGL 101  or dual-enrollment in HBS Track II


  • 280+ Patient Contact Hours
  • 8 Credit Hours and 6 Upper Division Credits
  • Community Service Hours
  • Inside exposure to structure, operations, and professionals within Florida Hospital


“This partnership provides our students with a unique opportunity to gain meaningful real-world experience to supplement their academic courses while working alongside Florida Hospital employees. Students will learn from some of the best in the field on how to care for individuals on all levels,” - Dr. David Greenlaw, former President.
