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.
