Course Description CP 1

This course is designed to provide students with community based opportunities to provide physical therapy and health care services actualizing skills and knowledge acquired in the first five semesters of the curriculum. Experiences may occur in any outpatient orthopedic facility. Students participate in supervised clinical practice on a full-time basis in an eight-week assignment. The total clinical education program includes four full-time experiences designed to foster integration, application, synthesis, expansion, and modification of didactic learning in the development of clinical competence of at least entry-level performance. In addition, the experience is important to the development of patient care, teaching, administrative, and consultative skills. Through discussions, observations and collaboration with clinicians, students will discern both individual interests, and professional needs for research in physical therapy.
