This will be followed by practical exercises, where you will be receiving information regarding the requirements and acceptable practices.

Although you will have received training in these areas during your course work they will be reinforced during clinical practicum.

All students are required to wear professional attire when practicing in clinic, including enclosed footwear for safety reasons. Comfortable black pants and high-cut shirt with short sleeves are recommended.

As a rule of thumb, consider dressing in a way that is similar to that of the clients whom you would like to attract to your own clinic.

Is it ok to feel this nervous?

Yes, it is normal. All students will feel a little anxious; it is understandable to feel apprehensive when doing something for the first time. Remember that the clinic staff, other students & supervisors are all there to help support you and please feel free to ask lots of questions!

Do I need to be there early?

Yes, clinic commences 30 mins prior to the scheduled starting time. So for an 8am clinic you need to be ready to start at 7.30am, this also ensures you arrive before your clients.

Note that you will also be required to stay back at the end of the day for approximately another 30 minutes.

Do I have to attend clinic orientation?

The Clinic is open Monday to Friday with clinic hours broken down into four sessions per day: Each session being 90 minutes.

Regular operating hours are from 8:00am to 5:00 pm with a minimum of 15 min break between patients. Practitioners conducting 4 CHT sessions in one day must have a mandatory 1 hour break between the second and third patient.

What to do if I'm running late or can't make it?

Contact the clinic lecturer or teacher ASAP. You will then need to apply for a Clinic Makeup time which may not be available until the next semester depending on which day was missed. Lecturers will do their utmost to accommodate Clinic MakeUps but it may be not possible and have to be postponed. Which would be a real dissapointment for everybody.

Do I have to attend clinical practicum?

Depending on which course you choose, it is a prerequisite of graduation that you attend all clinical practicums that are part of your course. This will also help settle any nerves and best prepare you for practice.
