Please Note: Because of ethical concerns, applicants cannot have multiple relationships with the MHC or the Gallaudet student population. Thus, they cannot be past or current clients of the MHC or receive services as a client in the future. Some jobs on campus, such as in the residence halls or other part-time positions on campus, can create dual relationships. Therefore, it is possible that practicum students will not be able to hold certain positions on campus while in training at the MHC. Discuss any jobs that you have or concerns about this issue with Dr. Rush.
