Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education works with clinical training management leader to benefit students and COAMFTE-accredited programs
WATERTOWN, Mass. (March 6, 2019) – Time2Track, the leader in clinical training and experience management, today announced that it has partnered with the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE). As a part of the collaboration, COAMFTE-accredited programs and programs in the process of seeking COAMFTE accreditation can now leverage Time2Track to track student achievement and the relational and systemic experiences provided by their students.
Programs that choose to use Time2Track will ensure tracking consistency for every student in their cohort and facilitate consistent program-wide reporting. Time2Track’s robust reporting will also empower programs to track impact on minority and underserved populations, ensuring that diverse clients’ needs are met.
“Time2Track formalizes clinical experience tracking. The structure it offers helps programs determine if their students have acquired the skills they’ll need to be successful in the field,” shared Tanya A. Tamarkin, COAMFTE director of accreditation. “For COAMFTE-accredited programs using Time2Track, students will save time tracking their experiences, and programs will save time analyzing and reporting that data to stakeholders, including COAMFTE.”
Mercer University’s master of family therapy program is one of many COAMFTE-accredited programs that have already begun leveraging Time2Track to benefit students and the program. “Using Time2Track has ensured our students meet our expectations, and it has the added benefit of offering our students post-graduation access to information that’s stored on the platform,” shared Janette D. Carter, M.Ed., program specialist in the Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences Department at Mercer.
“Since we began providing clinical training management solutions in 2003, we’ve seen over 80+ million hours logged. We’re excited to extend the benefits that we’ve offered so many students in other disciplines, including Psychology and Counseling, to more Marriage and Family Therapy programs,” said Maggie Wilkerson, vice president of Time2Track. “Working with COAMFTE, we’ll ensure programs are able to leverage Time2Track to not only track experiences and evaluate competencies but to make those data actionable. Together, we’ll build a better MFT workforce with the skills needed to serve our society’s diverse needs.”
