Since the transition of the healthcare professions education from the Regional Schools to University, the role of Coordinator of the clinical learning activities has been reinforced and has became increasingly important in the governance of the degree programs. However, to date, the professionals holding this function have expressed disappointment for their position within the organization and the instability of their role. Aiming at developing a stabilization policy of this role, a National survey was conducted to describe the functions, recruitment criteria, term of office and development of Coordinators of the clinical learning activities of the 22 Healthcare Professions Degree Programs’ campuses. Two hundred and twenty nine Directors/Coordinators out of 425 eligible (53.8%) participated in the study; they represented 16 out of the 22 Healthcare Professions. The 41.9% of the respondents were named as Coordinators and the 42.4% as Directors. More than 85% of the interviewees were ˃ 41 years old, had a Master degree and a three-years renewable contract; the 70% worked for the National Health Service, the 23.6% for the University and the remaining 6% were freelance professionals. Two third of them had a full time position. All the respondents worked as Coordinator for at least three years and the 36.7% of them for more than 11 years; the 50% of them had a salary equal to a Charge Nurse. More than 90% of the respondents perceived themselves autonomous in the organization and evaluation of the students’ clinical placements, while they reported a reduced autonomy in the supervision of Courses schedules and in the Tutors’selection. Starting from these results, the CPCLPS may hypothesize possible developments for the coming years.
