Off Campus Clinical Education
In addition to the outstanding clinical education our students get on campus and with our local affiliated sites, students are encouraged to gain additional clinical education at sites off our campus through our Internship opportunities. In the past few years, IC students have gained valuable clinical education experiences at the United States Military Academy at West Point, with the Empire State Games, and with numerous high schools and sports medicine clinics. Before initiating an off campus internship of a student's choice, students must seek approval from the program and the chose site, register for appropriate course credit, and complete paperwork with the office of the Dean of the School of Health Sciences & Human Performance.
About the Office of Experiential Learning
The Office of Experiential Learning was created in 2003 for the purpose of facilitating off-campus educational opportunities for the students in the School of Health Sciences & Human Performance.
Experiential Learning opportunities are designed to provide students with an experience in which they are required to be active and intentional learners. The goal is for students to transfer their knowledge and experiences from the classroom to current and ongoing events in situations in professional fields. Critical to this experiential learning process is for the students to reflect and evaluate their experiences throughout the process.
