2020 Practicum Fair Information

Friday, December 3rd & 4th, 2020
Location: Virtual Platform

The Practicum Fair is free and open to member programs and institutions.

Detailed information about this year's virtual fair have been emailed to each site who registered.

The Fair is one of the main events that ACEPT sponsors each year usually on the first Friday of December. It is typically a large tabling event that allows students to speak directly to site training directors and supervisors about their training programs and for site training directors and supervisors to meet prospective trainees.

Over 50 training sites participate and hundreds of students tend to attend each year. There are also training sessions about the ACEPT Guidelines that take place at the Fair. It is also a wonderful opportunity for academic training directors, site training directors, and supervisors to interact in a warm, casual atmosphere.
