Mentor a Student

Open your door to current University of Alberta Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine students by hosting clinical placements at your private practice, rehabilitation centre, health facility, hospital, or school. Our students are not limited to accepting clinical placements in Alberta alone, and we’re always looking for more national and international placement sites for U of A students.

About the Collaborative for Scholarship in Clinical Education (CSCE)
