Course Information

APTA Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program (CCIP)
This voluntary program is designed for people interested in or involved with clinical education, including clinical instructors (CIs), center coordinators of clinical education (CCCEs), academic coordinators/directors of clinical education (ACCEs/DCEs) and academic faculty, and is recognized by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) as a Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program (CCIP).

The program is intended for health care providers who work primarily in a clinical setting and are interested in developing their teaching abilities. Participants will explore different aspects of the clinical learning environment and will learn skills and techniques necessary to provide a structured and effective learning environments for students. The goal is not to improve individual clinical skills, but to develop and each refine participant's ability to teach, instruct, and guide the development of his or her students.

The program is divided into two distinct parts:
1. CI Education Program via an interactive didactic course format that is appropriate to all clinical educators
2. Assessment Center (credentialing) of curricula outcomes through six simulated situations available only to Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants.

These components are used together to first provide, and then assess, the knowledge and skill identified as essential for clinical instructors.
