Coronavirus Update: College of Health Sciences Clinical Education

Dear College of Health Sciences faculty and students,

The clinical programs in the College of Health Sciences that are able to provide alternate methods for clinical education, including the School of Nursing and the School of Chiropractic are excused from clinical rotations for one week, beginning on Monday, 3/16/20.

The programs that have had sites closed to students, including the School of Naturopathic Medicine, Fones School of Dental Hygiene, and the Acupuncture Institute are excused from clinical this week. We will assess clinical experiences for these areas on a weekly basis moving forward.

Students in clinical programs, including the Physician Assistant Institute that require direct patient care or external medical laboratory rotations (Medical Laboratory Sciences) as the only option may request a temporary release from clinical assignments by contacting the program’s Clinical Coordinator. We will assess the clinical education for all the programs further next week.

If you have any questions, please contact your Clinical Coordinator or email me at capapp@bridgeport.edu.

Sincerely yours,

Carol Papp, Dean
College of Health Sciences
