Course Description

The Advanced Clinical Instructor Credentialing Program brings two constructs together in one professional development program that advances both clinical teaching and best practice when providing student clinical education.  Using a case-based and interactive approach to education, this program will provide participants with the essential knowledge and skills to more effectively teach and mentor students in the context of a doctoring profession.  Through the program’s unique philosophy and design, best outcomes will be achieved for student learning.

The program is divided into three distinct parts:

1.    Pre-course assignments that include reading three articles and completing three of the online Professionalism modules.

2.  Advanced clinical instructor education via an interactive didactic course format that is appropriate to all physical therapist clinical educators; and

3.    Assessment (credentialing) of curricula outcomes through and Assessment Center to apply information from the Advanced CIECP.


Upon completion of the course, the participant will be able to:

Teach using pedagogical methods that enable learners with patients/clients to integrate more complex concepts by demonstrating the following:

1.      Consistent application of professional standards and regulations in clinical education

2.     Six elements of Vision 2020, professionalism, evidenced-based practice in a consistent and clinically relevant manner;

3.     Correct use of the patient/client management model

4.     Professional communication in clinical practice, including documentation

5.     Clinical decision making using patient values, professional skills, and the best available evidence

6.     Professional responsibilities through participation in professional association activities

7.     Lifelong learning through an individual professional development plan

Be more effective and efficient practitioners and clinical teachers by:

1.      Advancing clinical teaching concepts.

2.     Modeling, integrating, and promotion behaviors that are congruent with and reflective of the six elements of Vision 2020 and the core values

3.     Synthesizing information from APTA, FSBPT, CAPTE, and state and federal regulations

4.     Demonstrating best practice in documentation

5.     Applying the patient/client management model, evidenced-based practice, clinical decision-making approaches, and professional ethics in everyday practice
