Telehealth

Can students participate in Telehealth visits?

“APTA has been a long-time advocate for PTs and PTAs providing services via telehealth — the use of electronic information and telecommunication technologies to remotely provide health care information and services. COVID-19 has quickly changed the landscape of telehealth and other communication technology-based services.”

In the state of California, the student and CI can be located:

  • In the same room/location with the patient in a separate room/location

  • In separate rooms/locations with the patient in a 3rd separate room/location

  • In separate rooms/locations with the CI and patient in the same room/location.

What is not allowed:

  • The student CANNOT be in the same room/location with the patient while the CI is remote.  The CI must provide direct supervision when a patient is present.
