Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program (CCIP) Overview
This voluntary program is designed primarily for people interested in or involved with clinical education (clinical instructors [CIs], center coordinators of clinical education [CCCEs], academic coordinators of clinical education [ACCEs]) and is recognized by APTA as a Clinical Instructor (CI) Education and Credentialing Program.
The program was developed through a grant funded by APTA under the direction of principal investigator Michael J Emery, PT, EdD, with co-investigators Nancy Peatman, PT, MEd, and Lynn Foord, PT, MS, MEd, and with materials used by the New England Consortium of Academic Coordinators of Clinical Education.
The program addresses issues of:
- planning and preparing for physical therapy students during their clinical education experiences
- developing learning experiences
- supporting ongoing learning through questioning and effective feedback
- developing skills of performance evaluation
- identifying and managing students with exceptional situations
- identifying legal implications for clinical educators, including issues presented by ADA legislation
