This webinar brings together a panel of experts to explore common legal issues within clinical education. Specifically, a case-based approach will be used to discuss:

  1.  How to be confident that you can dismiss a student.
  2.  Legal issues around common accommodations in clinical education.

The panel will then address participant questions related to contemporary issues in PT clinical education, such as: criminal background checks, telehealth supervision, medical/legal marijuana use, COVID (exposure and vaccine; potential resultant delayed graduation and legal ramifications).

Target audience: PT educators, Academic Faculty, Clinical Educators, and Clinical Instructors.

Learning objectives: By the end of the webinar, the attendee will:

  • Identify when it is necessary to reach out to general counsel and when it is not.
  • Be able to explain the importance of policy and procedure in clinical education.
  • Be able to justify the University’s stance on marijuana use and ability to participate in the clinic (including in states where there is legal use).
  • Be confident that the institution is in appropriate legal standing when dismissing a student.
  • Be able to revise/draft your current policy and procedures based on what are considered reasonable accommodations in clinical education.
