This course offers learning opportunities for both novice and experienced PTs and PTAs involved in clinical education. Clinical education makes up one third of PT program curricula and nearly one half of PTA program curricula. Your role as a clinical instructor (CI) is critical to the success of PT students’ and PTA students’ entry into the profession. As a clinical faculty member, you have the opportunity and responsibility to direct the future of physical therapy.

Clinical Instructor Certification must be obtained in two parts (as of January 2008): Part I is a web-based course and must be taken prior to this course (unless you have proof of having attended a certification course by the Texas Consortium from 2003-2007). It provides a foundation upon which Part II is based. Go to for more information.  It is $40 for 0.4 CCU's. Allow up to 48 hours to receive your log-in ID following registration. Proof of completion may be printed at the end of the course.

Part II is an onsite course building on the content in Part I to prepare CIs to mentor the next generation of students as the profession moves toward Vision 2020. You may take Part II without Part I if you are not intending to become a Certified Clinical Instructor through the completion of the course.



  • Discuss the impact of Vision 2020 and the new vision on clinical education and integrate future changes into your facility’s clinical education program.
  • Develop a clinical curriculum based on behavioral objectives for students and foster more independent student learning.
  • Analyze situations when students struggle and intervene with effective strategies. Recognize when students can be challenged to perform at the next level.
  • Assist students in developing clinical decision-making and problem-solving skills.
  • Interact with colleagues to practice your skills as a clinical instructor.
