Clinical Education Workshop for Physical Therapists

Clinical Education in Pediatric Settings: Teaching DPT & PTA Students on Early Clinical Rotations

Tuesday, June 6, 2017 -- 5:30-7:30pm
University of Indianapolis Health Pavilion, Room 206

Earn: 2 Contact Hours

Cost: FREE

The Academy of Pediatric Physical Therapy acknowledges the lack of new PTs and PTAs entering into the field of pediatrics, yet many clinical instructors do not offer opportunities for students to experience pediatrics during full-time clinical experiences or they limit their offers to final internships. We would like to offer a framework for teaching students during first/early full-time clinical experiences with the goal of lighting the spark for them to enter into the field of pediatric physical therapy in their future careers. 

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Apply the Academy of Physical Therapy core competencies to pediatric clinical education
  • Appreciate the benefits of working with students in the pediatric setting
  • Understand program expectations for early clinical rotations
  • Develop clinical teaching plans/approaches for use with students on early rotations
  • Acknowledge perceived barriers and identify strategies to overcome them
