Prior to a student being permitted to begin his/her clinical experiences each year, he/she must complete the following requirements:
Failure to complete the above required items will result in the student not being permitted to begin clinical rotations. Since clinical rotations are a required part of the Clinical Education course, the student’s grade will be affected.
The minimum requirement for each clinical course is as listed below:
If a student is not able to meet the minimum requirement for the clinical experiences during a given semester, he/she must defer at least a portion of the rotation. Students will need to consult with the Clinical Coordinator to begin the deferral process.
Students are required to have comparable relief (or days off) from clinical experiences during the academic year. To this end, the following policies have been developed:
Students may volunteer to accumulate additional clinical experiences once their clinical hour requirement is met for a particular rotation, however they cannot be required to complete additional hours and they may not carry additional hours forward to a different rotation.
