Independent Study Options

      The CATIE Center at St. Catherine University has helped to create a number of study packets that can be used independently to develop skills for interpreting in healthcare settings. Additionally, they can be used to earn CEUs through RID’s CMP/ACET program.

      How to Earn CEUs

      The two toggles below have information on how to earn CEUs using the Independent Study Packets and pre-approved online modules.

      CEUs: Setting up an Independent Study

      The PDF packets available below are designed so you can download and print them out. They also have the appropriate forms filled out to initiate an independent study. All you need to do is contact an approved sponsor through RID’s CMP/ACET program who handles independent study. To locate an approved sponsor, visit RID’s searchable database.

      A note on CEUs for the study packets:

      The CATIE Center estimates the activities contained in the PDF files are worth 1.2 CEUS. You may submit it as written to an RID approved sponsor or customize it to earn more or less. In our experience, the more you customize an independent study to areas that interest you the more likely it is that you will complete the work. You are encouraged to add additional features to this study plan in order to reach the maximum possible 2.0 CEUs.

      Examples of possible customized activities might include:

      • An internship
      • A more in-depth reflection paper
      • Further research on the topic
      • A combination of these.

      The number of CEUs this independent study might earn can only be determined through negotiation with your CMP sponsor. Your first step is to contact your sponsor and discuss your plan.

      CEUs: Working with an Online Module

      Pre-Approved Online Modules

      The CATIE Center is working on transforming the study packets into pre-approved learning experiences that have a designated number of CEUs. These are not technically independent studies. Currently, RID’s Professional Development Committee (PDC) is working to create a new designation for learning opportunities that addresses the type of experiences that online learning presents.

      The first packet that the CATIE Center is developing is “Steps to the Beat.”

       

       

      Independent Study Descriptions

      The CATIE Center is in the process of transforming the PDF packets into a more online-friendly format in Moodle. If that format is available, it will be noted in the description below.

      The independent study options are listed here as a series of posts.
