Several women’s health clinicians have asked the Section on Women’s Health for help in creating clinical education programs since many of these professionals do not believe they have the resources to establish such programs in their clinics.
Simultaneously, student interest in the practice of women’s health physical therapy is growing, and clinical education sites are in high demand.
To address these needs in our membership, SOWH has formed the Clinical Education Task Force. Our goals are twofold:
(1) to write a position statement on the role of students in clinical affiliations in women’s health physical therapy, and
(2) to compile and distribute resources to help women’s health physical therapists create clinical affiliations at their clinics.
To accomplish these aims, we need your input. We need to know what the current practices are in women’s health clinical education and which resources you have found helpful for student education. We also need to know which clinician resources would be helpful to members interested in becoming clinical instructors.
We have created a survey to help us gather that information. Please consider sharing your experience and your insight in clinical education in women’s health with us.
This survey should take no more than 20 to 25 minutes to complete, and it should be completed in one sitting so the information can be recorded correctly. The link is live, and the survey will be available until May 4, 2016. Please complete the survey before that deadline!
The task force thanks you in advance for your time and commitment to excellence in clinical education in women’s health.
