CARY – Cary Physical Therapy recently hosted the Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program developed by the American Physical Therapy Association.
Cary PT is a clinical education site for the Physical Therapy programs at NIU, UIC, Bradley, and Rosalind Franklin University. The physical therapists at Cary PT, all of whom have either a masters or doctorate degree, participate in supervising PT students during their clinical rotations.
“This is a great way for us to give back to the profession,” said Deb Gulbrandson, owner of Cary PT. “The PT students keep us on our toes as they have access to the latest research and ask great questions. It gives them an opportunity to work in a family-owned private practice which is somewhat unique.
"We have state-of-the-art equipment and they are often surprised to see how much we offer to our patients – aquatic therapy, Pilates, video-taped gait analysis and Metabolic Fitness, as well as the latest physical therapy techniques," Gulbrandson said. "Our therapists are excellent in their field and have great teaching skills. This credentialing program further illustrates our commitment to provide the highest level of care to our patients and community.”
