Rehab Clinical Education

Philosophy of Clinical Education

Clinical educators at StVincent Rehabilitation Services believe that…

  • Students deserve qualified, competent and proficient role models as clinical instructors
  • Students have a wide variety of learning needs and styles
  • We can provide an environment conducive to learning multiple aspects of patient care
  • It is the student’s responsibility to take control of their own learning
  • It is our responsibility as clinical faculty to facilitate student learning and encourage the students in their areas of interest
  • The flow of teaching is not just from clinical instructor to student, but an exchange of information and learning takes place
