Clinical Lactation Practicum in Dallas
The Clinical Lactation Practicum (CLP) focuses on increasing the health care professional’s knowledge of lactation problems and methods of intervention. The CLP provides an opportunity for direct observation, instruction, and hands-on demonstration of breastfeeding support and counseling. Students shadow experienced hospital and clinic-based International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC).
The Practicum is a 2-day course. The Lactation Care Center will contact students directly with agenda, dress code, and other important information. The first day will be observation at a local hospital, observing an IBCLC. The second day is at the Lactation Care Center of Dallas, observing and practicing hands-on assistance with clients.
Students not currently employed by a Texas WIC agency will need to provide proof of immunizations and may also be required to complete patient safety modules in advance to comply with the hosting hospital’s policy regarding patient safety and liability. Therefore, registration must be submitted at least 6 weeks in advance. The complete immunization documentation must be sent to the Lactation Care Center at least 3 weeks prior to the class date or you will be cancelled from the class.
The Practicum is limited to 3 students per date with specific dates for degreed and non-degreed students. Degreed healthcare professionals include degreed, licensed, and board certified professionals such as physicians, nurses, dietitians, nutritionists, and IBCLCs. Non-degreed para-professionals include Peer Counselors, La Leche League Leaders, WIC Certifying Specialists, Doulas, etc.
Failing to cancel at least a week in advance will forfeit the registration fee and may affect your ability to reschedule this class in the future.
