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.
- 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;

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