This study measured the extent of the effect that benefits and barriers have on physical therapy clinical instructors, examined relationships between demographics and benefits and barriers, and discovered additional benefits, barriers, and incentives. Participants included 168 physical therapy clinicians. They completed self-developed demographic, benefit, barrier, and incentive questionnaires that were received through email. According to the mean score on a Likert scale, external benefits and organizational barriers have the largest effect on clinicians. Independent t-tests and ANOVAs indicated that facility, degree, and years of experience before supervising students had a significant effect on at least one of the benefit or barrier categories. An inductive approach indicated that the most common theme for each qualitative question was the benefit of growing as a clinician, the barrier of schedules/caseloads, and the incentive of free/discounted education. Overall, many current benefits and barriers were supported by this study. Some of the top benefits were associated with the university. This could allow universities to continue/improve their benefits as incentives for clinicians. Many top barriers, however, are not able to be controlled by the clinician or the university. It may also be that universities need to address the benefits and barriers on an individual basis.
