DPT 610: Clinical Education Affiliation II (8 weeks)

Course Description This is the second affiliation for Physical Therapy students following two years of didactic and clinical training. The affiliation provides students with the opportunity to enhance their clinical decision-making skills in the application of the patient client management model. Application and practice allow the student to build confidence in all aspects of patient care. Students are encouraged to explore their role as well as the role of various members of the health care team as they design and implement the plan of care for their patients. As students progress through the Clinical Education sequence they develop an understanding of the PT's role as a consultant and as a team member working with PTAs and other supportive personnel. Students should demonstrate the initial ability to function professionally in these roles.
