Clinical Compliance Basics

What is Clinical Compliance?

Clinical Compliance means being ready to work in a clinical setting. Clinical experience is essential to every Allied Health program, but, to serve in the clinical setting many requirements must be met in order to protect your safety, the safety of your peers, and the safety of the patients with whom you will be working.

You cannot enter the clinical site unless you are compliant.
