Office of Clinical Practice

COVID-19 Campus Closure - Spring 2022 Updates

Due to the COVID-19 Omicron variant, staff are working remotely from January 7 - February 6, 2022. Students can contact staff remotely during this time. Please continue to check the CSULB COVID-19 website for up-to-date information.

For the Spring 2022 semester, the College of Education has determined that fieldwork for all Clinical I and II initial credential program courses will continue to be conducted through alternative assignments.   During this time of transition and repopulation, students will not be permitted to complete any portion of their clinical practice (fieldwork) hours at a school site.  Instructors for each Clinical I and II course will provide students with alternative clinical practice assignments at the start of the Spring semester.  Few execptions may be based on program requirements.  Any questions regarding clinical practice assignments should be directed to your course instructor.

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.
