University of Delaware Office of Clinical Studies

 Welcome to your Field Experiences!

The Office of Clinical Studies (OCS) is here to assist you, a University of Delaware teacher candidate, by securing field placements that enhance your understanding of the best practices being explored in your classes on campus. We also provide support for faculty, clinical educators, and school administrators who work with teacher candidates. Through all of our interactions, we emphasize our mutual goal of preparing the next generation of teachers while enhancing the experience of the children and youth served in the sites within which we work.

Students, clinical educators, and faculty will find the information that they need to support their role in field placements on this web site. I invite you to spend some time exploring our website to learn more about our services and exciting initiatives that support UD teacher candidates while partnering with our local schools and community programs.
