PTHP 8351 - Integration for Practice: Neuromuscular

Prerequisites: Successful completion of previous DPT coursework. Through a series of problems, cases and skills labs, this course addresses the integration of pathology and pathophysiology of the nervous system with physical therapy examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis and intervention for patients with neurological disorders. Students will be expected to use this information to develop a plan for interventions to meet patient-centered goals. There will be a variety of learning experiences available for each student, including the tutorial group process for problems and interaction with persons with neurological disease or injury. There will be computer patient stimulations, as well as hands-on lab activities with students and/or faculty simulating patients in which students will practice techniques for examination and interventions for physical therapy problems.
