Practicum 1

This course represents the first in a continuum of practicum courses. The practicum course facilitates the application of concepts taught in the program through skills and simulated scenario-based practice. Students will acquire problem solving and clinical decision making skill through the acceptance of a series of graded responsibilities progressing towards competency. The opportunity to practice in a simulated setting allows the learner to practice skills and decision making in a safe controlled laboratory setting. Evaluation is competency based and requires the completion of a skills and scenario portfolio.
