Clinical Practicum Handbook

The Clinical Practicum Handbook provides policies and procedures for on and off-campus clinical practicum completion, but the main focus is the operation of the ASU SHC. It is required reading for all student clinicians, and a signature form is required (print, sign, and submit with other clinical requirements). Up-to-date records for student malpractice insurance, TB skin test, and CPR certification are also required.
