The Office for Clinical Affairs is responsible for the daily operational activities of the clinical curriculum and clinic Programs of the New Jersey policies and procedures for ensuring the effective and efficient operation of the School's clinics. The office for Clinical Affairs works collaboratively with the School's Associate Dean's and Department Chairs to improve the School's academic and clinical programs.

Every effort is made to assign each student to a variety of patients, thereby providing a broad experience in the biological and technical aspects of patient care. There is a continuous monitoring of patient care provided by students in the Comprehensive Care System.

Through the Group Practice Administrators, students are supervised in their performance of comprehensive care that include attendance, scheduling of appointments, and the timely delivery of care to the patients are evaluated. There are 35 additional personnel supporting clinical and clerical activities.

Although interdisciplinary in nature, the Office for Clinical Affairs has overall responsibility for the Patient Care and Management I and II course.
