    *Note: GWSPH transitioned to Handshake Experiences as the Practicum Tracking System as of Monday, May 22nd. However, some students will remain in Exxat until December 2023 as they wrap-up their Practicum experiences. If you are a preceptor who has a student who began their Practicum prior to Monday, May 22nd, you will utilize the Exxat system for approvals - please see the attached guide to assist you during this transition period.
