Clinical Rotations

Learning Through Patient Interaction

Students who require clinical training or practicums as part of their curriculum may apply for placement at Carilion facilities. Placement in a specific department or profession is subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed.


  • Students should not contact Carilion Clinic staff and/or providers seeking clinical placements. All requests must be sent directly to Visiting Student Affairs to be considered for a rotation.
  • Applicants must be enrolled in a current program of clinical study pertaining to the rotation being requested.
  • Completed applications must be received by the deadline provided for each semester. We do not accept early or late applications.
  • An existing Affiliation Agreement (contract) must be in place prior to beginning a rotation.
  • Students must complete an online student orientation and any additional required training requested by Visiting Student Affairs prior to the start of the rotation.
