We are in need of physical therapists to serve as clinical mentors. As a clinical mentor, you would be overseeing the treatment that student physical therapists provide for patients, consult with students regarding appropriate treatments for patients, and aid students with documentation.
We schedule clients within two-hour windows with the expectation that the students treating that night, as well as our clinical mentor, will arrive 30 minutes prior to make a plan and stay 30 minutes after the last patient leaves to aid and sign off on documentation. The clinical mentor’s primary responsibility is to oversee the student physical therapists' planning, evaluating and treatment of clients. The clinical mentor is also responsible for supervising the creation and maintenance of documentation and must co-sign all documentation with the student physical therapists. Mentors provide direction and support to student physical therapists in regard to client care in accordance with the Pennsylvania Physical Therapy Practice Act and APTA Code of Ethics.
Our hours change every semester based on our students’ class schedules and your availability. For questions related to scheduling, email us at NBPTC@temple.edu.
We welcome inquiries and applications from currently licensed physical therapists. Please submit an application to provide us with your availability and submit required documents.
