This comprehensive position description was initially compiled in 1991 based on position descriptions provided by individual Academic Coordinators of Clinical Education (ACCEs) throughout the United States. This current version of the model position description was developed based upon Academic Coordinators/Directors of Clinical Education suggested revisions to the 1999 model position description. The position description represents an aggregate perspective of a broad continuum of activities and responsibilities assumed by ACCEs/DCEs in physical therapist and physical therapist assistant programs in 2002. This description is meant to serve as a resource and guide and primarily emphasizes roles and responsibilities associated with the management of the clinical education program with the understanding that additional responsibilities are expected of a faculty memberrelated to teaching, service, and scholarship. Expected roles and responsibilities for this individual ultimately lie with the individual academic program and institution.
