Clinical Education

Clinical Education in the College of Health Sciences and Professions refers to students’ education – outside of classrooms - in settings pertinent to their professions.

Receive holistic experience with individual attention

While laboratory and simulation experiences comprise a portion of education in our health sciences and professions programs, clinical/learning experiences are considered an integral part of the educational package.

Clinical/learning experiences in our college are as diverse as the disciplines represented below. These clinical/learning experiences may be referred to by different names, but all share the definition: that they are designed for the student to gain knowledge, that they require the student’s presence at the site, and that they are part of a course required for completion of a degree.

Clinical/learning experiences take the form of real-time application and incorporate evidence-based practice.  The scope of these clinical/learning placements is vast and can encompass the provision of services to patients/clients, capstone projects, service-learning, program development, community health, administration training, and/or education/prevention activities.

Clinical/learning experiences associated with these disciplines are located locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.

It’s about supporting each faculty member to meet their own goals whether it be clinical work, research or instruction.”
