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.

Bobcat Student Orientation

OHIO student leaders prepare for Bobcat Student Orientation

This summer Bobcat Student Orientation will include virtual and in-person events and options for students and their families. 

The orientation experience has been expanded to include three phases. Phase 1 includes pre-orientation modules that will be released to students in May. The live event in June with an option of attending virtually or in-person is the second phase. Programs have been shortened to one day to help ensure the safety of participants with regard to COVID-19 protocols. Finally, Phase 3 will take place in July as a post-orientation module experience.
