It is expected that students must attend the mandatory Clinic and Outreach Orientation and all fourteen (14) scheduled shifts for the respective term module. During the first week of the Term 2 Clinic Module, students will participate in a mentoring shift shadowing a senior student.
Each Clinic shift is approximately five to five and a half (5 to 5.5) hours in duration. Clinic does not run during the last two weeks of any given term, due to final oral practical and written examinations. Each student is scheduled to work in the Clinic one evening per week.
Prior to graduation, all students must complete at a minimum 330 in the Outreach Program. Of the assigned outreach hours, sixty (64) hours must be allocated to the hospital/hospice category. The remaining hours can be distributed amongst the categories as per availability and/or student preferences.
It is the student’s responsibility to ensure all Outreach requirements are met prior to graduation.
