Members of APTA have an opportunity to help develop the clinical performance evaluation instrument for residency education by participating in a work group looking for volunteers with a range of backgrounds in residency programs.
The American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE) is in search of volunteers interested in reviewing the current landscape of residency evaluation used in physical therapy and other professions and building a valid, reliable evaluation instrument. Experts are being recommended in the categories of residency program director (academic and clinic-based residency models), residency clinical educator, residency mentor, active resident, and residency graduate. ABPTRFE is also seeking an external member with expertise in measurement and evaluation.
Work will begin in May 2014, and will include 2 2-day meetings per year, held at APTA headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, as well as a 1-day meeting during APTA’s Combined Sections Meeting. Additional teleconference meetings will be held as needed.
To apply for this important project, visit the ABPTRFE website, where you can also review the complete charge for the work group. Deadline for application is November 30, with appointments made on February 3. If you have additional questions, contact Kendra Harrington, APTA manager of residency/fellowship at firstname.lastname@example.org.
