What We Do
Educating future physical therapists and physical therapist assistants is a skill. Acquiring this skill is similar in nature to acquiring any other skill: some are inherently good at it and some need teaching to develop it. Regardless, all clinical educators of physical therapist and physical therapist assistant students can either develop or share their teaching experiences with others. Unfortunately, not enough clinical instructors have resources to use when working with students. We are here to serve as a resource for you!
