Office of Clinical Studies

Our Purpose

The Office of Clinical Studies (OCS) within the Delaware Center for Teacher Education secures field placements for University of Delaware teacher candidates and supports faculty, staff, clinical educators, and school administrators who work with teacher candidates in the field. 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.
