Practicum Intervention Policy

The University has an obligation to protect the public interest, public safety, and public health by ensuring that Students in Practicums conform to accepted standards of professional, competent and safe practice in their work with patients, clients, and co-workers.  This Policy provides Deans with the authority to intervene in the Practicum of a Student and/or an associated Professional Program because of such concerns.  The Dean's authority is balanced by the granting of appeal rights to a Student who is the subject of a Practicum Intervention.
