  Policy and Procedure Manual
 

Practicum, when used effectively and in conjunction with classroom theory, can be an important contributor to the learning process. The ability to actually perform tasks in a work setting is considered vital to the success of the Rehabilitation graduates. An understanding of theory and the proven ability to apply that theory makes our graduates employable in an increasingly competetive and demanding market.

It is for these reasons that Practicum is incorporated at every level of the program as outlined below.

RSP 120 Practicum

(2 credits) (64 hours + 16 course work hours)

Practicum at the 120 level is a volunteer placement experience where students have the opportunity for orientation, observation and, where appropriate and under close supervision, a chance to assist an agency representative. This volunteer placement is the initial exposure for students to the various rehabilitation departments/agencies and related professional fields.
