From 2007 to 2017, the APTA offered the Advanced Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program (ACCIP), which was available to credentialed physical therapists to advance both clinical teaching and best practice when providing student clinical education. The ACCIP has now been replaced with the Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program Level 2 (CCIP Level II), which is open to a wider audience. The CCIP Level 2 both applies and goes beyond the concepts of the structured and effective learning environment from CCIP Level I to allow participants to further develop their clinical teaching skills and construct a clinical curriculum. The program's unique philosophy and design will enable clinical educators to achieve the best outcomes for student learning.
At the conclusion of the program, the participant will be able to:
- Discuss the benefits and key components of a clinical curriculum.
- Advance clinical teaching concepts learned in the Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program, Level I (CCIP I) as applied to the novice-mastery clinical practice continuum.
- Integrate professionalism into a clinical curriculum that promotes the guiding principles to achieve the Vision for the Physical Therapy Profession (2013) and the core values.
- Diagnose and foster a student’s clinical reasoning.
- Outline a clinical curriculum to meet key learning experiences critical to patient management in their practice.
- Integrate interprofessional education and collaborative practice into a clinical curriculum.
- Integrate advocacy into a clinical curriculum.
