CHEP joins the Journal of Humanities in Rehabilitation (JHR) to sponsor a judged writing competition designed to encourage deep thinking by students about the role and value of humanities, ethics and professionalism in academic training and professional life.   The annual CHEP/JHR Physical Therapy Student Essay Contest offers a creative opportunity to ignite critical reflection in PT students across the nation about ways in which approaching patient care in a holistic manner improves patient outcomes.

Essay Prompt:  As healthcare professionals, working closely with patients, families, and colleagues offers opportunities for meaningful connection.  However, challenges may arise when we encounter perspectives, values, priorities, and communication styles different from our own.  Describe a time when you were challenged in such a way, and how you responded.

Prize Description: The winner of the Physical Therapy Student Essay Contest will receive $250 award from the ACAPT CHEP.  Additionally, the contest winner and two finalists will have their personal narratives published in a future issue of JHR.

Eligibility and Required Materials: All students currently enrolled in a Doctor of Physical Therapy program are eligible to apply. Submissions must include an original, unpublished personal narrative as well as a short (3-4 sentence) personal bio that includes the student’s current academic institution.

Timeline: Submissions will be accepted from November 15, 2019 – January 5, 2020. Any submissions sent in after 11:59 PM (EST) on January 5, 2020 will be considered late. Late submissions will not be reviewed. The winner and two finalists will be announced in the spring 2020.

Judges: Submissions are reviewed by a selection panel comprised of our guest judge(s), JHR Editorial Board and CHEP steering committee. Submissions are judged upon their engagement with the prompt, narrative structure, and attention to language.

Procedure:

  • Only electronic submissions will be accepted. All submissions should be sent as a single email attachment to CHEP.JHR.essay@gmail.com  by 11:59 PM (EST) on January 5, 2020.
  • Submissions should follow these formatting guidelines: twelve-point font, double-spaced text. Narratives in both PDF or Word files (.doc and .docx) will be accepted.
  • 800 word limit. As the winning personal narrative, as well as two finalists, will be published in a future issue of JHR, we ask that all personal information such as individuals’ names other than the author’s and specific locations be de-identified.
