The Office of Clinical Experiences

The School of Education’s Office of Clinical Experiences (OCE) is responsible for ensuring the quality of student experience in their clinical placements across programs – as these experiences are critically important to students’ development as teachers. To that end, the faculty and staff work to support students in the development as teachers by coordinating partnerships with schools and other clinical placements, identifying and training cooperating teachers for the important work of mentoring new teachers, and working with faculty and observers to ensure alignment of placements to the curriculum and academic work of a teacher.

Candidates planning to enroll in clinical courses that require placement in schools and other educational settings must complete and submit a request form or online application to the OCE, which will assign students to one of our collaborating schools.  The OCE arranges fieldwork and student teaching placements in New York City schools (within the five boroughs) and other educational settings. Clinical experience courses across programs require an online application with firm deadlines specific to each semester.  Candidates are advised to plan ahead the semester prior to registering for a fieldwork, or student teaching.  In addition, the OCE supports and prepares teacher candidates for the job market through career services, such as workshops and orientations on professional topics [e.g. resume writing and interviewing strategies] throughout the year.
