Detailed student clinical behavior policies are described in the Student Clinical handbook document (found in the Orientations folder of the online course)
Grading will be on a total point system. Each therapists' evaluation will be worth 1.0-3.0 points pts (any extra outside work will be given an assigned point value on an individual assignment basis). The student will usually be graded by two therapists per rotation.
For observational rotations, all evaluations from staff will be added together to equal 2 points per rotation. All evaluations regardless of rotation area will be averaged to form a single rotation grade. There will be 3-4 rotations per semester.
Grading Scale is detailed in Student Clinical Handbook and is different for the final semester
*there is no "B" or "D" in this course unless there is a grade reduction of one letter grade.
For a complete detailing of every aspect of policy revolving around grading procedures, see the Student Clinical Handbook.

All rules and regulations/policies and procedures for the clinical environment can be found in the Student Clinical Handbook document and reviewed with students at the beginning of the program (with overview each semester)
*Students should know that each affiliate reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to refuse its facilities and services to any student who does not meet professional or other requirements of the facility or any appropriate authority controlling and directing said facility. The clinical facilities can refuse student admission to their institutions for any number of reasons—including behavioral, attitudinal, technical competency, attendance, suspected substance abuse, etc. and at any time.
Amarillo College has no authority whatsoever over the actions of the staff and administration who work in these affiliates with respect to their decisions about student access to their clinics.
If a student is refused admission to ANY clinical affiliate for any reasons related to or attributable to real or perceived student conduct or clinical performance, the student will NOT be able to continue in the program! In such case, the student will receive a Practicum grade of “F” and will be dropped from the program with NO option to re-enroll.
Since there are very limited clinical resources, students cannot repeat an entire clinical semester (or even a rotation) if they receive a failing grade. Therefore, a student receiving a failing grade for any Practicum course (semester) will automatically (and immediately) be dismissed from the program.
Additionally, a student will receive a failing grade for their Practicum course AND be dismissed from the program if they:
If a student falls under either exception category, they will be allowed to continue in their clinical experience under “Probationary Status.” The student will be on probationary status for the remainder of the curriculum. Any other failing rotations will result in a clinical grade of “F”, and automatic dismissal from the program.
Note: any time a student receives a failing grade for a rotation, the Clinical Supervisor and the Program Director will discuss the situation. The Program Director will also meet with the student to discuss the situation. A meeting with all affected parties (student, clinic, faculty) may be necessary.
Unless extraordinary and unforeseen circumstances arise, students may not make requests regarding clinical rotation schedule preferences. Students must recognize that personality conflicts can occasionally occur at various sites, and that such conflicts occur when students graduate and enter into the workplace as well. Clinical rotation schedules are usually such that changes (especially once a semester has started) are not workable.
Note: a clinical affiliate can dismiss a student from further admission to their clinic based on technical competency (evaluation grades) or behavioral issues. The previously stated rules regarding dismissal from clinical sites will apply in these circumstances as well.
Consult the Student Handbook and Student Clinical Handbook for a complete description of all policies and procedures for Practicum
