What does a Clinical Instructor do?

Clinical instructors provide practical instruction designed to give students on-the-job training and experience working in a professional environment or simulated settings where they can perform the actual job duties of their intended profession. They may be expected to establish or expand programs or develop new, innovative learning formats. These instructors may also treat patients or serve clients.

Clinical instructors typically have an MD or equivalent credential relevant to the area in which they are teaching. They must also possess all required state licenses in good standing, complete a variety of background checks or security clearances, and be board certified or board eligible. Instructors have extensive expertise and credentials in their field, along with teaching experience or an interest in teaching. These positions require good organizational, presentation, and communication skills, and a passion for motivating students.
