For Health Science Education courses that require a clinical experience (with direct patient contact and care) as part of certification and/or licensure, the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) Clinical Experiences Consent Form must be on file for each high school student, regardless of student age.
This consent form is in addition to the Human Sexuality Instruction Consent Form. Specific information regarding clinical experiences is also to be included in your course disclosure document.
"Human sexuality instruction or instructional programs" means any course, unit, class, activity or presentation that provides instruction or information to students about sexual abstinence, human reproduction, reproductive anatomy, physiology, pregnancy, marriage, childbirth, parenthood, contraception, or HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. While these topics are most likely discussed in such courses as health education, health occupations, human biology, physiology, parenting, adult roles, psychology, sociology, child development, and biology, this rule applies to any course or class in which these topics are the focus of discussion.
