Refer to Applying to Field - Meditrek to begin the application process.
The Field Office will work in partnership with you to secure your internship site during the search process:
Once your Field Experience has been secured and all necessary paperwork has been completed, you will be enrolled in your field course (Field Education) within two weeks of your start date. You may not start your hours until the course start date.
IMPORTANT: Keep in mind that you will be required to participate in a weekly synchronous call (meaning that you will meet with your classmates and professor in real time, face-to-face) with your Field Liaison and peers in your field course. Your Field Liaison will provide you the schedule for that video conference.
Remember that you will need to keep track of your hours, as well as complete a Learning Agreement with your Field Instructor (agency supervisor).
Refer to the Course Information tab for more about your field courses.
