CCUs & Stipend

Physical therapy faculty who complete all requirements of the Physical Therapy Faculty Program, including an independent project within six months will be eligible for 41 Continuing Competence Units (CCUs) and a $2,000 stipend.

CCUs

FSBPT awarded the Continuing Competence Units (CCUs) in certification to this activity. CCUs represent an activity’s value based on its evaluation against a rigorous and comprehensive set of standards. CCUs are determined by a value applied to many factors including, but not limited to, duration of the activity. CCUs do not correlate to time (e.g. hours).

Stipend

Participants receive a $2,000 stipend after completing all requirements, including an independent project. The program includes the independent project as a requirement to provide faculty with opportunities for self-directed learning and to contribute to a topic of their own interest to the field. The topic should be related to physical therapy education on Parkinson’s and/or care for people with Parkinson’s and their families. The program director and experts at the host sites will discuss projects with faculty and guide/mentor as needed.
