The purpose of this study is to determine the prevalence of stress and burnout in physical therapist clinical instructors.
Participation includes a one-time completion of a single online survey with three (3) parts. The first part will be a demographics form to gather information about the participants taking the survey. The other two parts are outcome measures aimed at measuring stress and burnout levels. All three parts are taken at one time, and each part should take no more than five (5) minutes for a total of fifteen (15) minutes to complete the surveys. You will be able to save your answers and return to the survey if you need.
This study is open to all physical therapists who have had a student within the past 12 months and those who were full-time employees during the student’s clinical experience. You must have had a primary grading responsibility for a student physical therapist within the past 12 months.
