Imposter Phenomenon Survey

Physical Therapists from West Coast University are seeking participation in a survey regarding the prevalence of Imposter phenomenon in licensed physical therapists. Imposter Phenomenon, or perceived fraudulence, describes an ongoing fear of exposure as a fraud despite objective successes and accomplishments. 
The organizers of the study are hoping to gather data regarding not only the prevalence, but predictors and if there is a correlation to burnout within our profession. 

The survey will only take about 15 minutes to complete. Please only take this survey once, as you may see it on multiple outlets. Your participation is greatly appreciated! Please contact [email protected] with any questions you may have.
