What are 'clinicals'?
Clinicals are supervised work sessions in real healthcare
settings, allowing students to work with real
patients. Students enrolled in a college or university
healthcare program are able to put their knowledge and skills
learned in the classroom to work.
Students are rotated through a variety of departments, as deemed
necessary by their program. This allows students to
interact with a wide variety of patient interventions and
situations, under the supervision of their instructor and/or
facility healthcare professional(s). Clinicals are like
internships, and they are a critical and required
part of patient care training.
Before being allowed to participate in clinicals, students must
successfully complete training in the classroom, skills lab and
laboratory. The proper paperwork must be completed, including
health/vaccination requirements and a criminal background
check. A confidentiality agreement must be signed by the
student. Your high school careers counselor or
college/university program instructors can direct you to a list of
the requirements for the program(s) you are interested in.
