Adequate cultural awareness training is provided for cadets in our curriculum, in our training at CLC, and now via many overseas cultural immersion internship opportunities. Participating cadets develop cultural awareness skills and an appreciation of cultural differences while recognizing potential cultural impact on assigned missions.
The purpose of CTLT is to expose cadets to the life of a Platoon Leader in an active Army Table of Organization and Equipment (TO&E) unit such as the 82nd Airborne Division at Ft. Bragg, 1st Cavalry Division at Ft. Hood, and the 2nd Infantry Division in Korea. CTLT allows cadets to observe other leadership styles and to develop their own. Cadets must have completed the Cadet Leadership Course to be eligible. Cadets receive an Officer Evaluation Report (OER) upon completion of CTLT.
The four-week DCLT program allows cadets to serve in a platoon leader or executive officer position in Initial Military Training (IMT) companies and work closely with drill sergeants and other cadre. Position lengths vary in duration depending on the host unit and location. Cadets receive an opportunity to apply leadership skills, interact with highly skilled and experienced Noncommissioned Officers (NCOs) and drill sergeants, and improve common task skill proficiency in an Army training environment. Cadets must attend a Staff Cadre Training Course (SCTC) prior to training in IMT units. This program is exclusively designed for MSIII Cadets after completion of CLC.
Students are provided the opportunity to gain valuable clinical experience and refine leadership, clinical, and administrative nursing skills alongside an Army Nurse Corps officer. This course is clinically focused and based on the preceptor model of teaching. Upon completion of the Program, cadets receive credit for their Clinical Elective (NU 445).
The Army Intern Program offers opportunities for cadets with special language, technical, or research skills a chance to gain hands-on experience through work with various agencies, including positions with the Central Identification Laboratory, Defense Information systems Agency, National Ground Intelligence Center, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Army Science Board, Judge Advocate General, and the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine.
