Enhanced Clinical Observation
Clinical observation blocks is a system developed with student learning at its core. The goals are to maintain a consistent schedule with students of the same level of learning, with a single clinical supervisor to enhance clinical observation time, and develop student learning and application within the clinical setting. You will have focused attention with the goals to get you ready for the next steps in your education.
Winter 2024 Clinic Observation (Applicable to first-year students ONLY)
The block observation schedule will be observed for all clinical observation courses in both locations for our Winter 2024 semester.
Each student is responsible for attending every scheduled observation date and any excused absence will need to be made up on a weekend or during breaks. Any absence without notice given to a supervisor will be marked as an unexcused absence.
Unless specified, each block will meet the hour requirements for the observation section and students need only to choose ONE option to fulfil their hours.
