Welcome to the Northern California Clinical Education Consortium

The Northern California Clinical Education Consortium (NCCEC) is an organization dedicated to the development, implementation, and support of quality clinical education for Physical Therapist and Physical Therapist Assistant students. The partnership between education and practice provides leadership for clinical education programs and clinical faculty development. Through open discussion, networking, and aggressive exploration of opportunities and visionary ideas, the group fosters and supports dynamic clinical education environments for clinical faculty and students. These environments enable the student to transition into competent and socially responsible professionals who understand, respond, and promote creative problem solving in the rapidly changing, competitive health care delivery system. The Consortium explores, designs, and implements innovations that assist practitioners in the provision of quality learning experiences to meet its mission of excellence in clinical education.
