Internships and CLINICAL PLACEMENTS

Programs in the College of Health Professions prepare graduates to assume roles in a variety of clinical, teaching, community, and sport-related settings. Each program integrates this professional preparation with a rigorous grounding in the liberal arts and sciences. Faculty members support student development to assure that graduates posses the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary for career success. Internships and clinical experiences are an essential part of each student’s education.

The primary goal of clinical placements is to provide students with important, sequential experiences that will prepare them for a career as a health professional. The clinical placement will build on skills and competencies already acquired in class work, and will provide the opportunity to acquire new skills and knowledge.

The primary training method for the placement program is experiential. We hope that the student will be able to demonstrate an intermediate to advanced level of skills in assessment, diagnosis, intervention, consultation, and supervision. The goal for the end of the placement is that conceptualization and practice will become integrated for the student.
