Meet the graduates: Nicole Torchia

This fall, Torchia will enter Yale’s physi­cian assis­tant grad­uate pro­gram. She credits Northeastern’s expe­ri­en­tial learning oppor­tu­ni­ties with preparing her for the program’s rig­orous cur­riculum and with giving her a dis­tinct advan­tage. “I will be entering my pro­gram as one of the youngest, if not the youngest, stu­dent because my co-​​ops have given me more than enough (clin­ical) hours and expe­ri­ence without needing to take a gap year.”
