HOURS IN CLINICAL PRACTICE, APPRENTICESHIP OR INTERNSHIP Traditionally, most educators have gone to great lengths to ensure that learners invested sufficient hours as a basis for earning grades. Despite the importance of "time on task," what is more valuable is that a person comes away from a course with a level of skill and understanding that prepares them for life, in a holistic sense. The apprenticeship system in most guilds and trades required a person to be able to perform certain skilled actions or produce items of a certain quality before being promoted. This type of pedagogic approach can be seen in the writing of Johann Amos Comenius (1592-1670); in John Milton Gregory's Seven Laws of Teaching; or in reminiscences of training by Jean Louis Rudolph Agassiz, in Scudder's In the Laboratory with Agassiz. In other words, "hours spent does not an education make?" While learning does take time, a useful education comes from focusing on practical life-changing results which may or may not be reflected in program length alone.
Program hours here are to be estimated based on: 1.the supporting documents, e.g. laboratory hours on formal transcripts, attestation of clinical instructor, etc.; 2. estimated clinical hours based on a usual work week; i.e., 40 hours per 48 weeks, if engaged in full-time practice. The supporting document in this case is a notarized copy of previous business licenses or a signed letter from the institution of employment (e.g. Hospital, Clinic, Out-Patient Facility, Hospice, etc.). 3.Certificate course in humanitarian outreach.
