The Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program (CCIP) 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 environment for students. The goal is not to improve individual clinical skills, but to develop and refine each participant's ability to teach, instruct, and guide the development of his or her students.
CCIP courses are taught throughout the year in both Canada and the United States, and enrollment is open to physical therapists and physical therapist assistants. Clinicians from other health care professions are also welcome to participate - courses regularly include speech therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, and more.
Successful completion of the course provides physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with 1.6 CEU's* and the Clinical Instructor (CI) Credential. Health care providers from other professions are eligible to receive 1.2 CEU's,* but may not be awarded the CI Credential.
*Please note: Licensees should verify with their state licensing board for acceptance of continuing education units by reviewing the relevant state practice act and/or administrative code.
