Are you interested in clinical practice? Are you an educator invested in solving real issues and challenges related to developing school-university partnerships and centering clinical practice within educator preparation programs?
If you answered “Yes!” to these questions, you are encouraged to apply to be a Clinical Practice Fellow.
Who are Clinical Practice Fellows?
Clinical Practice Fellows are a community of school- and university-based teacher educators who have a strong interest in clinical practice. Clinical Practice Fellows consist of higher-education faculty, doctoral students, clinical field coordinators, mentor teachers, principals, teacher leaders… committed to engaging in collaborative dialogue focused on centering clinical practice and developing school- university partnerships within teacher education programs. Clinical Practice Fellows are selected through an application process.
What do Clinical Practice Fellows do?
Clinical Practice Fellows network with one another, share research and teaching interests, and hear from some of the top scholars and practitioners in the field as they engage in a national dialogue. These collaborations occur annually at the national symposium and throughout the year as we collectively dialogue on placing clinical practice at the center of teacher education.

How to apply?
This year’s Clinical Practice Fellows Symposium theme, Delving into Dilemmas: Inquiring Into Equity, Access, and Inclusion in Clinically Based Teacher Education, will be action-oriented and discussion-based. It is designed to bring teams together to work on problems of practice they face in their contexts. Participants will have the opportunity to network with fellows who share
similar challenges. Together we will generate ideas, brainstorm advocacy opportunities, and develop action plans. Thus, we will rethink the nature of clinical practice, re-imagine our partnerships, and re-envision equitable experiences that support all stakeholders.
Returning Clinical Fellows: We hope to see past Clinical Fellows return and invite you to share your work related to clinical practice. Once a Clinical Fellow, always a Clinical Fellow, thus former symposium participants need to complete the 2023 Clinical Fellows Symposium Returning Fellows Form by October 18, 2022. Included in this form is the call for Clinical Fellows Presentation Session Proposal.
