Please note that submitting a request does not guarantee placement. KRMC has the right to cancel a student placement at any time due to staffing availability.
Requests must be made by the school – student requests will not be accepted. The following documents must be included in a student's request to be considered:
All requests for clinical placement must be made in writing to the academic services department at Kadlec. If you're requesting placement in the occupational, physical, or speech therapy departments, you must make a request in writing to the respective department for placement in addition to the academic services department.
