In-field experiences (HITE 2759 Clinical Practicum) will be conducted according to the standards outlined in section 3.3 of the FEPRC standards (see appendix B). Existing Memorandums of Understanding between Darton College’s Allied Health programs and participating healthcare organizations will be utilized and when new facilities agree to take students, new Memorandums will be issued according to Darton College procedures. Field assignments for students will be made to coincide with classroom course content when possible and will cover all eight required educational components. While at the clinical sites, the students will be supervised by either the Program Director or a faculty member assigned to the clinical site and the organization’s own appointed site supervisor.
