(1.5 credit) 53 hours practicum
This optional clinical practicum is designed for nurses or physicians who do not have access to working with sexual assault teams or whose employers cannot provide clinical experience. Students will observe sexual assault examinations and interventions, gain practice with examination techniques and observe health professionals giving testimony in court. Availability of the practicum is dependent upon ability to make arrangements with a centre near the student’s location. Prior learning credit may be considered for relevant experience.
Prerequisite: Forensic Studies 5513 or equivalent, or consent of the chair of the department of Advanced Specialty Health Studies.
