College of Health Sciences Clinical Education
The College of Health Sciences clinical education program is a vital component of the curricula which include: physical therapy, occupational therapy, health information management, rehab studies, rehab counseling and prosthetics/orthotics. This aspect of the curriculum provides an opportunity for student assessment on didactic skills within a clinical setting. The academic components of this program focus on the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains of learning in a controlled environment, while the clinical education component of the curriculum allows for transference of that learning as it applies to actual patient care environments.
In the clinical setting, students are expected to assume limited roles as healthcare professionals while under the supervision and guidance of licensed professionals. In order to attain entry level status within the professions, students are expected to master all essential clinical and academic skills. The skills are identified in the respective course syllabus for each internship or fieldwork experience and correspond to the assessment tool utilized by each program.
The clinical/fieldwork coordinators from the departments of physical therapy, occupational therapy, health information management, rehabilitation studies, rehab counseling, and prosthetics/orthotics are happy and well equip to assist students in the coordination of their required clinical experiences. Students can be placed in Alabama or out of state depending on the availability of clinical slots at the clinical facility. Students are encouraged to take an active role in the planning of their clinical experiences by communicating with their perspective academic/fieldwork coordinator of clinical education. We look forward to serving you!
