Policy Statement

The programs in the College of Health Professions utilize a variety of off-campus facilities for the clinical training component of their curriculum. Students are only placed in facilities where an affiliation agreement exists between the university and the facility. Students are provided clinical supervisors who direct their educational experiences at the clinical or fieldwork sites. Each department or program has guidelines or criteria for verifying the qualifications of the individuals who serve as clinical supervisors. The department chair or appropriate program official is responsible for determining if personnel at the facility have the appropriate education, credentials, training and skill set to supervise students.
