Health Sciences Education Onboarding
Important Information for Clinical Rotations:
- Student rotations are to be confirmed with discipline-specific education coordinators.
- Once placement is confirmed, an onboarding form must be submitted, regardless of whether the student's placement is a continuation or a brand-new placement.
- As a part of onboarding, all health science students will be required to complete a COVID-19 screening. Students exhibiting fevers and/or COVID symptoms must undergo testing before being allowed to commence their rotation.
- Students will be required to comply with Cleveland Clinic regulations related to PPE including masks and face shields. Students should communicate with their preceptors prior to arriving at their clinical rotations to receive specific instructions on current PPE regulations.
Please Note: Pharmacy academic programs can obtain information and direction about pharmacy rotations by reaching out directly to Cleveland Clinic Pharmacy Education. Nursing education does not fall under the umbrella of the Center for Health Sciences Education. Please consult directly with the Nursing Institute for information about Cleveland Clinic nursing education.
About Health Sciences Education
Health science professionals are healthcare providers with a formal education and clinical training. They collaborate with physicians and other members of the healthcare system to detect, identify and prevent diseases and to provide therapeutic services to patients of all ages.
There are nearly 100 unique jobs in the health sciences. Some, such as radiologic technologists, physical therapists, and surgical technologists, have a lot of patient contact. Others are more technology-based and focus on behind-the-scenes work in laboratories or in health information management.
