Student Practice Education
Student practice education (also referred to as student placement) offers students hands-on experience in a clinical or community setting to learn the necessary skills, attitudes and knowledge to practice effectively in their field.
The student's educational experience may involve access to patient information or direct patient/client/resident care under the direction and supervision of practicing health professionals authorized by the health authority or educational institution.
Exceptions to this include:
- Job shadow experiences
- Supervised practice experiences
- Paid student experiences such as co-operative placements or paid internships.
