Hospital clinical rotations, field experience, and capstone field internship have the potential to be incredibly rich experiences for students where they have the opportunity to apply skills and knowledge acquired in the classroom. Coordinating the schedules is only one aspect of clinical coordination. Selecting appropriate sites, matching students to preceptors, monitoring student attainment of competencies, clinical supervision, and communicating with students and preceptors are all important components. We will explore current challenges in clinical education and best practices in managing the clinical coordination component of the Paramedic educational program.
