Hello Forum members

The context is a curriculum for a bachelors in physiotherapy degree program offered in India. The students do what are called "Clinicals" each semester for a significant period of time in physiotherapy clinics in addition to regular classes theory and practical, Seminars, Lectures etc.

These Clinicals are a sort of supervised training with qualified doctors and physiotherapists at clinics. At the same time this is not an internship which is a separate requirement (a compulsory internship of six months) to get their degree.

I am trying to differentiate between the Clinicals and the Compulsory Internship.

Would Clinicals (Praktika in Kliniken) and the other Pflichtpraktikum be ok ? Will in the former Praktika be understood as practical training and not "internship"

Danke im voraus
