Office of Clinical Practice

COVID-19 Campus Closure 

Due to COVID-19, many staff are working remotely on most days. Therefore, College of Education offices will not be open normal business hours. Please continue to check the Reuniting the Beach website for up-to-date information.

For the Fall 2020 semester, the College of Education has determined fieldwork for all Clinical I and II initial credential program courses will be conducted through alternative assignments.   Students are not permitted to complete any portion of their clinical practice (fieldwork) hours at a school site or to work with students either virtually or in person. Instructors for each Clinical I and II course will provide students with alternative assignments at the start of the semester.  Any questions regarding clinical practice assignments should be directed to your course instructor.

Office of Clinical Practice Resources

As we continue to navigate what clinical practice will look like in these uncertain times, the Office of Clinical Practice would like to provide the following Video Resource Links to faculty and students. ​During this time, the best way to reach us is to send an email to CED-OCP@csulb.edu

Welcome to the Office of Clinical Practice! The goal of the Office of Clinical Practice (OCP) is to provide support to students engaged in clinical practice through one of our many College of Education programs.  Students participate in clinical practice at various levels, beginning with observation in Clinical I fieldwork all the way through to Clinical III fieldwork which encompasses Student Teaching and Internship opportunities. 

One of the many ways OCP supports clinical practice is by developing and maintain professional partnerships between the university and the schooling community, thereby allowing for enriching experiences that provide high-quality work-based learning and pedagogical understanding.  Clinical placements and support are made possible through collaborative efforts of school districts, charters, and private organizations, as directed by university guidelines.
