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, counselors, and school leaders.  To that end, the faculty and staff work collaboratively to support students in the development as professionals by coordinating partnerships with schools and other clinical placement sites, identifying and training cooperating teachers for the important work of mentoring new teachers, and working with faculty and field supervisors to ensure alignment of placements to the curriculum and academic work of teacher, counselor, and leadership candidates. Specific student teaching schedules, (weekly and daily) will be determined by the partner site where students are ultimately placed. The expectation is for teacher candidates to honor each partner’s planned schedule.

Candidates planning to enroll in clinical courses requiring 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, student teaching or practicum course.
