The Task Force is seeking input from a broad spectrum of clinical education stakeholders and diverse clinical settings on this important issue facing physical therapy clinical education. Please find background information about this issue and the link
to complete the survey here. We request survey completion by August 31, 2018.
In recent years, many academic institutions have received notice from several clinical sites seeking payment for physical therapy clinical
experiences. The National Consortium of Clinical Educators (NCCE) has been asked by the American Council of Academic Physical Therapy (ACAPT) to develop a position statement regarding this emerging issue. The Task Force on Payment for Clinical Experience
was formed in response to this inquiry.
This survey’s purpose is to capture information regarding the barriers, benefits, and factors impacting payment for clinical experiences in physical therapy. These elements
may include the current state of payment models, legal and ethical implications, and stakeholder expectations.
Our Invitation to Participate:
We expect that the survey will take no more than 20 minutes of your time. We would
greatly appreciate your investment in this important endeavor and ask that you complete it within 2 weeks. Your input is essential to the work of the Task Force in formulating practical, relevant recommendations on payment for clinical experience.
We plan to have a preliminary report available in early October.
All data collected will be reported in aggregate and confidentiality upheld.
