This program is recognized and approved by the Board of Directors of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) as a Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program (CCIP). It is jointly sponsored by the APTA, New England Consortium of Clinical Educators (NECCE) and the New England PTA Consortium (NEPTAC).
The Level 1 CCIP addresses issues of planning and preparing for physical therapy students during their clinical education experiences, developing learning experiences, and supporting on-going learning through questioning and effective feedback. Skills of evaluation are discussed, as well as the identification and management of students with exceptional situations. The program closes with a brief look at legal implications for clinical educators, including issues presented by ADA legislation.
The course will be useful for both new and experienced physical therapist and physical therapist assistant educators involved with clinical education. While the information presented covers the basic skills for clinical instructors, the interactive tasks and large and small group discussions will be of benefit even to experienced educators.
This Level 1 CCIP offering will be held in a virtual format via Zoom (links to be provided one week prior to the course). The course will run from 7:45 am – 5 pm EST each day, and full attendance is required to receive CEUs and the Level 1 Credential.
