Each clinical internship site will set the hours, days, and scheduling for the student.
Students pursuing the pre-professional option are required to complete the minimum
contact hours as set by the particular clinical rotation (most are 160 hours); however,
clinical sites will determine the attendance schedule for each clinical internship
and student. Typically, these are performed Monday-Friday, first or second shift,
and require 40 hours per week for four weeks.
Students are required to come to clinical just as they would for any job: on time,
as required, fully engaged, and ready to learn/work. You are not permitted to alter
the schedule/hours without contacting the clinical coordinator and manager of the
lab ahead of time. If a student is to miss clinical for an illness, it is expected
that they contact the clinical coordinator and preceptor no later than 30 minutes
prior to expected arrival.
