A Guide to Work-based and Service Learning

As clinical placements become more limited, service learning can be an opportunity for students to experience the healthcare culture, environment, and expectations. When either or both are included as part of the health science program of study, workplace learning/service learning provide students with:

  • Improved academic achievement
  • Exploration of career options
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Real workplace experience and work readiness skills
  • Adult role models
  • Observation and practice of employability skills

This resource contains guides for the worksite coordinator and supervisor or preceptor and 24 rotations guides for specialty and subspecialty areas. These rotation guides will help focus the student’s time in a clinical area. Many careers in healthcare require some level of postsecondary preparation, early decisions that include workplace learning experiences will significantly benefit the student’s future.
