Title: Dual Roles in Assessment and Mentoring in Physical Therapy: A Contemporary View


Course Description: Clinical educators face numerous challenges and must manage multiple responsibilities while striving to effectively mentor physical therapy students in busy and complex healthcare environments. The purpose of this course is to discuss the dual role that clinical instructors undertake balancing critical assessment with supportive mentoring of students. 


Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Define student readiness from multiple perspectives.

  2. Explore various formal and informal assessment tools to develop strategies and processes for clinical education.

  3. Implement strategies to increase efficiency in mentoring students while balancing the multiple demands of clinical practice.  

  4. Demonstrate an awareness of the growing concern for the mental health and overall well-being of students.

  5. Recognize potential signs of student performance issues due to stress, anxiety, and emotional challenges.

  6. Develop strategies and a supportive approach to mentoring that fosters emotional resilience in all students during clinical education.  

  7. Generate ideas for the development of a mentor training program at one’s own clinical site.
