This is the first full-time clinical course in a series of three clinical courses. It consists of a six-week, supervised experience in one of three types of physical therapy facilities (acute care, ortho/outpatient or long-term care) and occurs after two semesters of didactic course work. Primary emphasis is upon: 1) gaining hands-on clinical practice in the skills covered during the first two semesters by providing exposure to clients with a variety of diagnoses, 2) facilitating communication skills (written and non-written) and 3) challenging the student's problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Lab fee required.
This course, offered prior to the student's first clinical internship, builds upon and integrates prior course content with an introduction to a broad selection of commonly seen medical and surgical conditions and their rehabilitation methods. Common treatment procedures, including precautions and possible complications encountered, are emphasized and addressed in both lecture and lab practice format.
