Event description

Description

Good day. We cordially invite to join us for the Fall 2017 APTA CI Credentialing course at our Graduate Center campus here in Los Angeles, CA. As a THANK YOU to our clinical education partners, CIs from our partnered sites that have mentored a West Coast DPT student are invited to take this course free of charge!

This program is recognized by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) as a Clinical Instructor (CI) Education and Credentialing Program. It takes 15 hours to complete the entire program for CI Education and Credentialing.

The program addresses issues of planning and preparing for physical therapist students during their clinical education experiences; developing learning experiences and supporting ongoing learning through questioning and eective 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 legalimplications for the clinical educator, including issues presented by ADA legislation.

The course provides each participant with the opportunity to apply information from the program in simulated situations. Successful completion of each section results in the awarding of APTA CI Credentialing. Therefore, it is necessary for each participant to attend all sessions of the course in its entirety in order to be eligible for credentialing.

The course will be useful for both new and experienced physical therapist educators involved in 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.

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

  • Compare the roles of the clinician and the Clinic Instructor;

  • Determine the student’s readiness to learn;

  • Develop learning experiences;

  • Describe methods to facilitate learning in the clinic;

  • Discuss rationale and strategies for evaluation of the student;

  • Identify and address legal issues regarding clinical education

Again, thank you for being a valued clinical instructor and instrumental leader in the lives of our DPT students.
