Clinical Education Office

The Clinical Education Office consists of two Academic Coordinators for Clinical Education (ACCEs): Lynn Frank and Kristin Ryan.

This office works with students to prepare for clinical experiences and to coordinate clinical placements. The ACCEs are available to advise and support students, Center Coordinators for Clinical Education (CCCEs), and Clinical Instructors (CIs) prior to, during, and following clinical experiences. Lynn and Kristin are resources for your questions related to program policies, clinical instruction, and specific students. Early identification of student performances that are of concern to the CI is highly valued by our office, as that may insure time to facilitate development of student skills, or implement action plans to strengthen professional behaviors.
