Field clinical experience includes: a period of supervised pre-hospital experience on an Advanced Life Support vehicle. Students are under the direct supervision of a department approved preceptor. This represents the phase of instruction where the student learns how to apply cognitive knowledge and the skills developed in the skills laboratory and hospital clinical to the field environment in the capacity of a team leader. Experiences include assessment, management, and diagnosis of various types of patients in the hospital/clinical setting. Basic life support (BLS) and advanced life support (ALS) skills are also emphasized. The field clinical runs concurrently with the in-hospital clinical.
