This guideline has been developed for the use of WCPT member organisations focussed on the delivery of high quality clinical education experiences in physical therapist professional entry-level education.

While the guideline has been developed for and with input from member organisations of WCPT the intention is that it may be used by countries where physical therapy associations and education programmes do not currently exist and where the profession is not represented in WCPT.

Recognising that the clinical education component of the physical therapist professional entry-level education programme varies around the world, this guideline sets out the issues to be considered in developing clinical education opportunities for student physical therapists.
