Procedures for Regulating Student Performance in Clinical Education

Clinical education is an integral component of most Health Career programs. In these programs, students learn in a combined format of classroom, laboratory and clinical practice designed to develop safe, competent practitioners. In the clinical setting, the client’s (patient’s) welfare and safety must be considered. Therefore, it is important for students and faculty to follow procedures which are objective, consistent and fair when the student’s clinical performance is unsatisfactory. Procedures for addressing unsatisfactory performance in a clinical setting are outlined in the student handbook, available in the Office of Student Life, Room B-240 in the Student Center.
