The primary purposes of the voluntary APTA Clinical Site Information Form (CSIF) is for physical therapist and physical therapist assistant academic programs to collect information from clinical education sites to facilitate clinical site selection and development, assist in student placements, assess learning experiences and clinical practice opportunities available to students, and provide assistance with completion of information in support of accreditation.
- Background: Clinical Site Information Form Web (CSIF Web)
APTA CSIF Web transforms the CSIF (Clinical Site Information Form) from a static document to a dynamic online survey, complete with tools to help academic programs analyze and validate data annually. CSIF Web saves clinical sites time by updating their information online and in one place; provides academic programs with the ability to view, query, and export site data, manage contract renewal dates, and report on clinical site information; and enables students to view and search clinical site information to make informed decisions.
- Accessing: Clinical Sites Information Web (CSIF)
