Required orientation and training for students, faculty supervisors and instructors.

All students and faculty must complete and submit the Student Practice Education Core Orientation (SPECO) Curriculum Checklist to your educational institution. Read the steps below for further information on provincial and Fraser Health requirements.

Before a student or on-site faculty begins a clinical placement, there are a few requirements to be completed to help ensure the safety and well-being of students, staff and our patients. Some requirements are shared across the province, and some are specific to the health organization, site or care area of the placement, as listed below.
