IU Health Office of Clinical Education

OCE is a statewide program within the Academic Affairs department serving to assist in coordinating advanced practice providers and graduate students clinical education within all of the IUH facilities and clinics.

A core mission of Indiana University Health is to provide excellence in education as an academic health system and to support learners within our organization and within the community.

The Office of Clinical Education (OCE) has an interactive database, which allows APP students to apply for clinical experiences with IU Health providers. Students can also upload a resume, syllabus, and other documents that could assist with their clinical placement and selection process for clinical placement.

Students who are accepted for clinical placement will be instructed to complete online educational modules which allow students access into the IU Health information systems. OCE will also ensure educational affiliation agreements are in place between the IU Health clinical site and educational institution.

Quarterly audits are conducted to verify students are compliant with IU Health requirements such as liability insurances, vaccinations, BLS certification, etc.

OCE encourages IU Health providers to become clinical preceptors for students who are seeking clinical assignments. A Preceptor Toolkit and additional resources for students are located on our Resources page.
