Purpose

The Iowa Clinical Education Consortium presents the APTA basic and advanced courses which will assist participants in developing and refining abilities to guide student development in a clinical environment.

Target Audience

  • Level I: Physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapists, certified occupational therapist assistants, speech language pathologists, recreational therapists, and other health care professionals.
  • Level II: The CCIP Level II is designed for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who have supervised or overseen the supervision of at least one student in clinical practice, or have been actively involved in student learning and education since receiving the APTA CCIP Level I credential. Clinicians from other health care professions who have completed CCIP Level I and meet the above student supervision criteria are also welcome to participate, but would not be awarded the Level II credential.

Course Description

  • Level I: This course addresses planning and implementing clinical education experiences for physical therapy and other students in the health care profession. The program is divided into two parts:  (1) clinical instructor education for all participants and (2) credentialing for PT/PTAs in the course through Assessment Centers.
  • Level II: 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 II (CCIP Level II), which is open to a wider audience.  The CCIP Level II 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.
