The Florida Consortium of Clinical Educators is pleased to announce that two individuals were from several candidates to receive recognition as 2016 Outstanding Clinical Instructors.
James S. Fenton, PT DPT was selected as the 2016 Outstanding Physical Therapist Clinical Instructor. Mr. Fenton is currently a physical therapist for Miami Physical Therapy Associates. His nominator commented on his exceptional commitment to providing quality clinical education and stated, “I feel honored and privileged that I was able to learn under someone who is so knowledgeable and caring and I hope to use all the tools he has provided me with during those 8 incredible weeks.”
James Fenton was unable to attend the 2016 FPTA Annual Conference luncheon, so Elsa Drevyn and Lori Gusman surprised him at his work and were able to present him with the award and read the letter from the student who nominated him. It was a very emotional moment for his supervisor, Miriam Guanche, as she had written the letter of recommendation for his application to the DPT program at the University of Miami many years ago.
Krista Parker, PTA was selected as the 2016 Outstanding Physical Therapist Assistant Clinical Instructor. Ms. Parker is currently a physical therapist assistant at Orlando Regional Medical Center. Her letter of nomination detailed her development as a great clinical educator and stated, “Through the years Krista has experienced a full range of students. One of Krista’s strong attributes is her ability to communicate effectively with her student, the CCCE and the DCE. She is able to organize complete learning experience which for a PTA needs to get done in a very short amount of time.”
Thank you to James, Krista and all of our excellent clinical instructors out there for all of your hard work!
