Advanced Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program

What is the ACCIP?

Florida Physical Therapy Association

This voluntary program is designed for physical therapists who have completed the APTA BASIC CCIP and are APTA-Credentialed Clinical Instructors (CIs) and have supervised and mentored at least one student. When participants successfully complete the Advanced Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program (ACCIP), APTA will award these participants the Advanced CI Credential.

The ACCIP brings two constructs together in one professional development program that advances both clinical teaching and best practice when providing student clinical education. Using a case-based and interactive approach to education, this program will provide participants with the essential knowledge and skill to more effectively teach and mentor students in the context of a doctoring profession, across core areas of contemporary professional education and clinical practice that foster best clinical teaching and best practice in patient/client management. The program's unique philosophy and design will enable clinical educators to achieve the best outcomes for student learning by concurrently advancing concepts of clinical teaching and clinical practice.The program is divided into three distinct parts:

Reasons Identified for Seeking the American Physical Therapy Association-Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program (CCIP) in Florida
  1. Precourse assignments that include reading three articles and completing three of the online Professionalism Modules;

  2. Advanced clinical instructor education via an interactive didactic course format that is appropriate to all physical therapist clinical educators; and

  3. Assessment (credentialing) of curricula outcomes through an Assessment Center to apply information from the ACCIP.

These components are used together to first provide, and then assess, the knowledge and skill identified as essential for Advanced CIs. Only Advanced Credentialed Clinical Trainers recognized by APTA can conduct ACCIP courses.
