Course Attendance

Course attendance at each course session is expected. If a student is unable to attend a course session, it is necessary that the student contacts the course instructor. If a student misses a significant percentage of class time (e.g. more than 20%) or more than two class sessions, a failing grade may be recorded for the course.



Medical/Legal Responsibilities

For courses where students are receiving supervision and/or consultation by a CBS faculty member, the faculty member, CBS Program and the Faculty of Health Sciences assumes no medical/legal responsibility for clients/patients. All students in these courses must be registered health professionals. Students must submit the appropriate legal waiver form and recording consent forms prior to the start of consultation.



When clinical case material is used in the courses for educational purposes, measures to ensure confidentiality must be properly negotiated and must be observed and respected by all those involved in the educational process.

Students who are expected to bring case material for a course must obtain approval to do so from their place of employment and their patient/client.

Students' Case Material

In courses where audio record case material is required, an audio recording consent form must be completed and submitted to the CBS office.
