Clinical education common terminology

ACAPT's Physical Therapists Clinical Education Glossary addresses the problem that academic and clinical faculty often use different terminology when describing their work within physical therapy education.  You can also read the published article: Recommendations from ACAPT's Common Terminology Panel (2018).
