Co-Op/Internship/Practicum FAQ

Co-Op / Internship / Practicum

Do I still need to report to my site/employer, if I’m on an academic internship for credit, practicum or co-op?

  • Yes, as part of your course requirements, you should continue working at your site/employer. If your site/employer makes changes to their business operations that impact your ability to complete your internship, practicum or co-op, notify your instructor immediately. Your faculty member will work with you on a case-by-case basis to arrange for next steps.
  • You should follow any guidelines at the site of your internship, practicum or co-op site for social distancing and about whether to stay home if you are sick or experiencing symptoms.
  • All Health Sciences students should follow the advice of their Program Director or faculty adviser regarding clinical experiences.
