Clinical experiential learning is a requirement for health and public safety fields. Clinical experience is unpaid, supervised work in healthcare facilities and fire departments.
Clinicals are the hands-on portion of the curriculum. The didactic, or the in-classroom lectures, provide a fundamental layer of knowledge for students to apply in a healthcare setting.
Clinicals are organized through your program’s clinical coordinator. You will have a clinical instructor and they will be on-site with you for part or all of the clinical experience.
Your clinical instructor is there to assist you with any questions you may have, but they are also there to assess your performance, effort, and knowledge of required skills.
