- If student performance indicates, “needs improvement” in the first two months of a practicum course, this will be monitored by the program faculty and communicated with the student and clinical faculty.
- It will be expected that the student obtains “acceptable” performance throughout the last month of the course.
- If the student fails to do so, program faculty may place them on probation. In addition, a clinical probation may be instituted at any time during a clinical course if a student exhibits unsafe or “unacceptable” clinical practice, or fails to submit the required evaluations or program required documentation of professional licensure.
“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
