Policy type
Policy categories

Curriculum development, instructional design and delivery, and evaluation of the physical therapist professional entry level programme are the combined responsibilities of the core faculty and programme head/administrator/leader/dean. This guideline on qualifications of faculty has been produced to support member organisations intent on meeting WCPT’s guideline for physical therapist professional entry level education through the development of physical therapist professional entry level programmes.  This guideline may be used by WCPT member organisations and their members in negotiating with governments and educational institutions; by people responsible for recruitment of faculty for physical therapist professional entry level programmes; and for existing faculty to understand the professional expectations for faculty appointments. Physical therapists considering an academic career may use the guidelines as an indication of career paths.
