Clinical Education Scholar Program

Join Us! Moving Clinical Education Forward!

Have you ever prepared for a physical therapy student’s first day at your facility and wondered “What classes has the student already taken?” or “What does the School expect us to achieve during this experience?” Have you ever had a particularly exceptional or challenging student and strived to find the best way to facilitate a successful clinical experience? Did you ever have a personal desire to more closely affiliate with an academic program as an expert clinical teacher? By participating in our Clinical Education Scholar Program (CESP) we invite you to help us explore PT Clinical Education from an entirely new perspective. You will have opportunities to learn and share valuable tools that can enhance your effectiveness as a Clinical Instructor (CI) or a Clinical Coordinator of Clinical Education (CCCE) conveniently and at no cost (taxes may apply) to you!
