More than 100 Clinical Placement Sites for the HEALTH SCHOOL of Metropolitan College
Metropolitan College has a long-standing tradition - more than twenty (20) years – in the provision of Health Sciences. Today, its HEALTH SCHOOL portfolio covers the widest range of programmes of study, in collaboration with distinguished public British Universities. The School offers programmes such as Podiatry, Nursing, Physiotherapy, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Dietetics, Biomedical Sciences and Sports Coaching & Physical Education. In addition, it offers postgraduate programmes in Physiotherapy and Advanced Dietetic Practice.
One of the most important elements and advantages of attending the HEALTH SCHOOL of Metropolitan College is Clinical Placement. The quality and validity of clinical placement is considered to be one of the most important stages of the educational process by partner universities as it is a prerequisite for both academic accomplishment and familiarity with actual working conditions and the acquisition of professional rights. For the academic year 2017-18, the clinical placement of the students is conducted in over 100 providers in Attica and Thessaloniki collaborating with Metropolitan College (hospitals, rehabilitation centres, clinics etc) and is often the springboard of a successful professional career.
The main objective of clinical placement is to ensure that students, under the supervision of experienced placement educators, come in contact with as many cases as possible in the area of their choice in order to acquire the necessary knowledge and experience, which will, later, enhance their competitiveness in the labour market.
