While you are in Pre-Practicum (CON 5371), your instructor will discuss the process to begin the last phase of your clinical training (i.e., your clinical field placement).
The first step is to complete your Mid-Program Portfolio Review. This is compeleted the semester before you intend on taking Practicum (CON 5372) = usually while you are in Pre-Practicum (CON 5371). You will discuss your placement plans with Program faculty during your Mid-program Portfolio Review. Note: Mid-program reviews are not offered during the summer for most students. Only online students are permitted to complete their Mid-program Review in the summer (during a residency).
After completing Pre-practicum (a hands-on, classroom-based experience) and successfully passing your Mid-Program Review, you will engage in a 100-hour Practicum placement (CON 5372) in the field. After completing Practicum, you will begin a 600-hour Internship placement (CON 5390).
Before starting Pracitcum, every student must submit
- a signed Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) and
- proof of liability insurance coverage
Below are the deadlines for your MOA and insurance submission
||Paperwork is due by the second week of July
||Paperwork is due by the second week of November
||Paperwork is due by the second week of April
You are not permitted to take Practicum and Internship at the same time.
Internship can be completed in either one or two semesters, but no more than two.
