Clinical Student Placements are for people registered in clinical programs at University or College that require a placement or internship as part of the students' coursework. These are not paid positions. The number and types of placements available depends on staff availability.  

TVCC is committed to providing quality clinical student education. Students are provided not only opportunities to develop clinical skills of their discipline, but also to learn about work on an interdisciplinary treatment team. Students have the opportunity to observe and participate in a variety of clinical services across our organization.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions:

Working Hours: 8:30 am to 4:30 pm (with some exceptions at the discretion of the supervising therapist)

Dress Code: Comfortable yet professional attire which will allow you to get down on the floor to provide treatment to children.

Parking: Student parking is available in front of Thames Valley Children's Centre (Lot 7) for a fee. Parking rates change often see here for a map and current rates. There is free parking available on nearby streets, some of which have time limits.

Driving: As many of our services are community-based, placements may require the use of a vehicle. These requirements need to be discussed in the early stages of arranging a placement.

Other Facility Requirements:
We require a current Criminal Reference Check before starting a placement here. Any placement involving visits to schools will require going through the provincial school board reference check process before starting the placement. We also need proof of up-to-date immunizations and TB tests before the placement begins.
