Multnomah’s MAC program includes the application of theory in direct clinical experience. Approximately one year into the program, students may begin their clinical training at approved internship sites. While enrolled in clinical courses, students have the opportunity to provide direct clinical service to clients in community agencies approved by the school.
This hands-on training augments and enhances the academic knowledge in the classroom. The training received at an approved site is interchangeably referred to as “clinical placement”, “field placement”, or “an internship”. It is through these designated training agencies that students obtain their hours of clinical experience.
