Review our Student Placement Policy (AU1100) for more information.

Post secondary student placement

Post-secondary student placements are for professional development/time limited practice or an observational experience relevant to a student’s field of practice/study. Examples include student practicums, clinicals, collaborative learning units, fieldwork and preceptorships. This placement process includes non-clinical post-secondary student placements (e.g. business).

Non-affiliated/non sponsored/non-clinical student placements

This is a time-limited placement for individuals either not associated with a formal education program or is wishing to do a non-clinical placement.

Observational experiences

There are times in a clinical experience where a student may wish to have additional or alternative observational experiences to their primary placement. There are a number of locations that are open to students coming for short periods of time to observe the service or program. In general, we ask that these experiences be requested as part of the primary placement request. When planning and requesting these experiences, please consider the impact that the alternate observational experience may have on the staff in that area and on the placement of other students.

The high school student placement provides an opportunity for students in Grades 10 – 12 for an observational experience as they move into career preparation processes.
