Clinical Experience Placement

The number of students placed in the clinical experience (on campus program) is based on capacity of the clinical facilities to accommodate students. If there are not enough clinical sites to accommodate all students in a given year, selection will be based on the student’s academic and numerical ranking determined by program officials. Every effort is made to ensure admitted students of placement for training within the capabilities of the university. However, SDSU cannot guarantee that events beyond its control such as natural disasters, labor disputes, war, etc. might not prevent a student’s completion of a clinical experience.
