An activity that contributes to or counts towards clinical/professional education and training requirements for an accredited course. In other words, a clinical placement is an essential requirement that is necessary for successful course completion (and therefore would exclude voluntary extra placements).
- Occur in a clinical setting (i.e. generally outside the university educational setting, although may occur in university clinics).
- May include a variety of activities (e.g. rotations, observations, selective placements) across all or some years of a particular course, depending upon the accredited course requirements.
- Could potentially, in some cases, include a simulated component which meets the curriculum objectives of a clinical placement.
