Academic and Clinical Education
The Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program (CCIP) is intended for health care providers who work primarily in a clinical setting and are interested in developing their teaching abilities. Participants will explore different aspects of the clinical learning environment and will learn skills and techniques necessary to provide a structured and effective learning environment for students. This 2-day course will utilize lecture, discussion, activity learning strategies and assessments to help attendees enhance their skills in planning and preparing for physical therapist students' clinical experiences, developing learning experiences, providing effective feedback, evaluating student performance, understanding the legal implications for clinical educators, and identifying and managing exceptional students. Upon successful completion of the course including six assessment centers, participants will receive the designation of Credentialed Clinical Instructor from the American Physical Therapy Association.
