The clinical placement database (Placement.accdb) is an important part of the clinical
placement process as it holds information about affiliation agreements, the majority of
our current preceptors, as well as all of the graduate student placements that have been
made since Spring 1994. This database is managed by Jenn Waugh in Academic Services, but
the majority of the data is provided by the staff and faculty coordinators who help
arrange student placements.
To gain access to this database, contact Stephanie Kirschner (stann at uw dot
edu, 206-616-5066) in order to complete the required
FERPA confidentiality form. You will complete the first section, and the second and
third sections will need to be completed by:
Return the form to Academic Services, c/o Stephanie Kirschner (Box 357260).
- your immediate supervisor
- your department chair
Once AS has received a completed form, you will receive instructions on how to
download the placement database. AS may need to arrange a short period to set
this up on your work computer, but this generally takes no more than 5 minutes.
Important Security Reminder
Remember that this database contains very sensitive information, subject to FERPA
(Family Education Rights and Privacy Act). Avoid leaving the database open on your
desktop when not in use and do not give out the password to others under any circumstances.
In the future, we may require FERPA training (similar to HIPAA training), but in the
meantime remember to keep this information secure!
