Practice Education

Learning by doing

Practice education is the process through which students develop knowledge and skill in their areas of training by working with clients under the supervision of a qualified practitioner.

Practice education:

  • helps students develop knowledge and skills in the assessment and treatment of clients/patients;
  • facilitates and supports student application of academic knowledge in the interest of best practice;
  • encourages professional growth and development of both the student and educator;
  • helps students learn to work as members of interprofessional collaborative teams;
  • is an integral component to programs in all of our Schools/College.

The Faculty of Health also offers students the ability to participate in interprofessional practice education initiatives. 

Interprofessional practice education:

  • helps students in different professions learn about, from and with one another to enable effective colloboration and improve health outcomes. (World Health Organization)
