Clinical Preceptor Requirements

New Preceptor/Clinical Placement Procedure (Required Each Semester for Each Preceptor/Clinical Site)

We have many existing clinical agreements with local health care agencies. Please contact the Graduate Program Director Professor Heidi He ( to find out if the clinical site that you are interested in has an existing clinical agreement with CSUB. If there is no existing agreement, a new clinical agreement must be established between the clinical site and CSUB before you can start your clinical hours there. The negotiation process can be very lengthy, particularly when it is a large organization or government agency. Occasionally, the negotiation can fall through.
