This form is to be mailed, faxed or emailed to the appropriate contact person. Please refer to the Alternative learning experience listing

Alternative student objectives and evaluation form
The first page of this form should be printed out and completed by the student prior to attending an alternative/observational experience. The bottom portion is to be completed by the staff who works with the student at the alternative site. The second page should be returned to the clinical instructor. This form can be used by the student to evaluate their alternate site experience and for the student to evaluate the staff who worked with them during this experience.
