Clinical Placement Procedure

Clinical Placement Procedure

After a student has completed the DMS application and been deemed eligible, the student will provide the DMS Clinical Coordinator with five facilities that they would like the Clinical Coordinator to contact for potential placement.

 Common difficulties in obtaining clinical placement:

  1. Local traditional programs already having established relationships
  2. Patient volumes do not meet CAAHEP accreditation standards
  3. Facility staff does not meet CAAHEP accreditation standards
  4. A facility may be too busy and/or unwilling to take a student
