: The majority of information for this manuscript was obtained directly from the authors who are the Program Director and Assistant Program Director. They used their experiences and documents that were used in planning and maintaining the program. However, it should be noted that some information was acquired through current faculty members and alumni perspectives.
: All general feedback and perspectives were gleamed from the alumni survey that was emailed out to students upon completion of their classes in the program. The first set of students received their survey for general program feedback. Upon checking with the IRB board, in order to use data acquired from the alumni survey, we were instructed that IRB approval was not necessary because it adheres to the “exempt status” as it examines the perspectives of students about the program, course work, faculty, etc. Upon receiving this notification, the authors used both the first and second group of alumni as well as faculty results in reporting feedback for this manuscript.
: All quotes that were used in the manuscript were obtained from student and faculty responses from the two surveys.
