ATR 515 - Clinical Education I
First in a series of 5 integrated clinical education courses in the MSAT curriculum. This series of courses will focus on clinical practice and/or collaborative practice (interprofessional education, civic engagement, etc.). Students will work in teams, each with a clinical faculty member/ preceptor and/or an academic faculty member, to observe patient interactions, apply skills, demonstrate clinical problem-solving and assume professional roles in various patient care settings (based on their level of clinical experience). Each semester, students will be expected to demonstrate skills and knowledge gained from the current and previous coursework. The bulk of this course is completed at affiliated clinical facilities during 10 weeks (~8 hours per week) of the 2nd semester of the first year for a total of 80 hours. Students are expected to demonstrate content knowledge and competency with clinical skills learned in semesters 1 and 2. Prerequisites: Satisfactory completion of first MSAT semester.
