Clinical Evaluations

All students will receive feedback (written and oral; formative and summative) from faculty regarding their performance during the clinical rotation (Clinical Evaluation Tool and Criteria for Satisfactory Performance) in Appendix C. The length of a clinical rotation will dictate the frequency of formal evaluation sessions. In all clinicals, students are evaluated at least twice – at the middle and end of the course. Students should be aware that evaluation of clinical performance is ongoing.

Students who are not meeting minimum standards of performance are counseled in a timely manner by the instructor and are given written notification of their unsatisfactory performance using the Performance Progression Alert. Students may at any point be removed temporarily or permanently from clinical sites for egregious, dangerous, or unprofessional conduct.

Satisfactory clinical performance is a requirement of all clinical experiences and is required for a passing grade in the associated course.
