We want to ensure our students understand the health and needs of diverse populations in their local communities. As part of that effort, the College of Health and Human Sciences forges relationships with preceptors and community partners to provide students with hands-on experience as part of their training.
Rotations, practicums, internships, and clinical experiences take a students’ education out of the classroom and into a care setting, requiring them to apply leadership skills, function as a member of interprofessional teams, identify patient care activities, further develop their cultural competence, and more. Simply put, preceptors and community partners play an important role in the education and real-world experience of our students.
Our goal is to raise $3,000 to help further our mission to produce graduates who demonstrate a commitment to community and professional service. Donations, big and small, will be used to grow our community partnerships and to support the College of Health & Human Sciences as a whole. Help us reach our goal by donating today!
What kinds of community partnerships will your donations support?
Students in our Nutrition and Integrative Physiology programs and those completing our Dietetic Internship and the Individualized Supervised Practice Pathway gain clinical learning experiences in hospitals, schools, public health settings, and more. Students engage with members of the local community as they complete rotations in food service management, clinical nutrition, community nutrition, and specialty concentrations – such as pediatrics, geriatrics, diabetic populations, and more. Clinical experiences for athletic training students may be gained on and off campus and includes the FSU Athletic Department, FSU Campus Recreation Department, local high schools, and medical clinics.
Our Department of Human Development and Family Science students gain practicum and internship experience with human service organizations, behavioral health centers and organizations, education and school settings, childcare settings, counseling and outreach centers, government agencies, and many more.
