PTHP 9292 - Clinical Experience II

Prerequisites: Successful completion of previous DPT coursework. This is a 16-week full-time clinical experience focusing on the care of patients with neurological and/or complex medical problems. Students are assigned to inpatient acute care, inpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing or outpatient facilities. This experience may be scheduled either as 16 weeks in one facility with opportunity for participation in multiple patient care areas, or as two 8-week periods in different facilities. Under the direct supervision of a physical therapist, students use the knowledge and skills gained in didactic coursework to examine, evaluate, diagnose, develop a prognosis and expected outcomes and intervention plan and implement that plan for patients with orthopaedic dysfunction. Students document their work using proper format, research information about problems with which they are unfamiliar, and perform other duties pertinent to functioning as a member of the healthcare team.
