Clinical Experience Locations

The Health Sciences Division programs use a variety of clinical agencies in the Southern Maryland tri-county and greater Washington, DC areas. Clinical experiences are held at a variety of health care facilities and community-based locations where specific activities are planned to correlate with the educational program. Although Health Sciences Division faculty attempt to assign students to facilities close to their homes, some experiences can be obtained only in facilities that are located farther away. Students are responsible for providing their own transportation to all clinical experiences. All clinical and field experiences will take place in the approved clinical facilities or agencies. All clinical and field experiences will be scheduled in advance. Schedules of students clinical and field experiences will be shared with the clinical facilities under contract with College of Southern Maryland.

According to CSM contracts with the clinical and field agencies, student's health information records, background checks and drug screens, will be shared with the clinical/field agencies to verify the student is eligible for clinical scheduling. All clinical and field experience agencies or facilities have the right to refuse a student access to their institution or agency, with or without a reason provided. Health professions can be physically demanding, with required activities such as turning, lifting, and transferring. Students should review the ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS and HEALTH REQUIREMENTS RECORD prior to petitioning for admission as Clinical Agency protocols require all health care workers to be physically stable in order to provide care. Hospital administrators, Program Coordinators, and the Health Sciences Division Chair have the authority to refuse facilities to students when the safety of care provided to patients is challenged.
