Students participate in a clinical placement to develop competencies related to client assessment and intervention, communication skills, record keeping, case management and professional development. Students manage a client caseload and participate in a variety of clinical management and service activities within the on-campus clinic. All students engage in reflective practice and reciprocal learning including supervisory conferences with their clinical educators and peers. Students are expected to demonstrate competency in professional communication skills, teamwork and effective time management, as well as safe and appropriate client management. Students will be mentored by final year students for part of the semester.
