Course Description CP 3

Located in the final semester of the program, this course is designed to build on skills learned in the first two clinical experiences by providing students with community based opportunities to provide physical therapy and health care services actualizing skills and knowledge acquired in the previous eight semesters of the curriculum. This course will provide in-depth exposure and hands-on experience in the clinical setting. Students may have the opportunity to develop areas of special interest, such as pediatrics in the school system, neurorehabilitation, hand therapy, burns, or sports medicine. The clinical sites will include acute care medical centers, subacute centers, home health agencies, outpatient clinics, and specialized practice centers. Students participate in supervised clinical practice on a full-time basis in a ten-week assignment. Under the guidance of a licensed clinical faculty, the four full-time experiences are designed to foster integration, application, synthesis, expansion, and modification of didactic learning in the development of clinical competence of at least entry-level performance. The cumulative outcome of the clinical experiences should represent practice patterns that range in conditions from acute to chronic and across the lifespan. This clinical experience is important to the development of patient care, teaching, administrative, and consultative skills in coursework completed. Under supervision, students will evaluate and treat clients across the life span reflecting diversity of diagnosis and culture.
