On Friday, November 4, 2016 from 8:30am-4:30pm, the annual Consortium Continuing Education Conference was hosted by The Ohio State University, The University of Dayton, and Ohio University. Approximately 60 clinicians attended this year's course entitled, "Cultivating the Clinical Education Team: Successful Strategies from the Clinic" which focused on contemporary clinical education processes in networking and the facilitation of professional development, with a focus on mentorship.

During the course, DCEs/CCCEs/CIs modeled mentoring-through-networking and shared information related to enhancing the clinic site’s placement process, facilitating CCCE↔CI communication and mentoring, and developing learning strategies for the early learner. At the conclusion of the course, participants shared ideas generated through networking.
