#DPTstudent Chat for Wednesday, June 11, 2014 @ 9PM EST: Should Schools Pay to Place a #DPTstudent in Clinic?

There is a trend emerging in #DPTstudent education of declining reimbursement and less flexibility and options with clinical placements. As a result, some schools are beginning to offer money to clinics in order to persuade them to accept students. In this week’s #DPTstudent chat, we will discuss the implications of this change, good and bad. Should PTs consider it a part of their job to instruct incoming professionals? Does this practice reduce the #DPTstudent to a commodity? Or is it a necessary change given health care reimbursement decline? You tell us!
