Given the unpredictability of the year ahead, ACEPT has been working on options for virtual meetings, etc., in order to continue our tradition and commitment to a sense of community. We feel that even though we may not be able to be together in person, we can still create and maintain a solid connection with one another. Please check for updates regarding upcoming meetings as well as this year’s practicum fair. We hope everyone is staying healthy and safe during this unpredictable time.
Posting Open Externship Positions (Fall 2020):
ACEPT acknowledges the especially challenging landscape of COVID19 and its impact on clinical training. When reviewing student applications for practicum or for internship, we ask that you keep in mind that student training has been disrupted. Please consider this with regards to direct clinical hours in particular. ACEPT also asks that training sites put trainee safety and health first and follow the CDC/IDPF guidelines in accordance with exposure to COVID, following protocol if/when trainees fall ill or are exposed to COVID. It is important to note that trainees are a vulnerable population as many do not have access to health care due to their role as students.
We also acknowledge that some students have been displaced from their practicum sites due to various concerns that have arisen in relation to the health crisis. We ask for flexibility and understanding due to these unusual circumstances. If any sites have additional flexibility to offer training, please fill out the form here. We will be posting lists of practicum openings on our website over the next few week
