Practicum and internship meetings
Twice a year, the counseling program holds a mandatory orientation meeting for students who are preparing to enter practicum and internship.
There will also be a required practicum clinic orientation later in the semester for students who are approved for practicum. This orientation is scheduled by the clinic director. Failure to attend the meeting may result in delaying practicum participation.
