Event description


Course Description:

Instructor: Linda J. Johnson, PT, MS

The program addresses issues of planning for students during their clinical education experiences, developing and facilitating learning experiences, supporting ongoing learning through questioning and effective feedback, and partnering between the academic program and clinical sites.

Evaluation tools and skills are discussed as well as the identification and management of both the difficult and the exceptional student. The program includes a brief look at legal, regulatory, and ADA implications for clinical educators, including issues presented by HIPAA and Medicare.

The information presented will be useful for physical therapist and physical therapist assistant educators, new and experienced clinical instructors and clinical educators from nonphysical therapy providers based on a solid theoretical foundation.

Successful completion of the six stations of the Assessment Center is required by PTs and PTAs to be awarded the Credentialed Clinical Instructor designation. Participants who successfully complete the course will be awarded continuing education units: PTs/PTAs: 1.6 CEUs, Healthcare providers from other disciplines: 1.2 CEUs. The Assessment Center is integrated into the schedule for the course, therefore it is imperative that each individual attend all sessions of the program and Assessment Center in order to be successful.
