DPT 661: Professional Development IV

Course Description This final seminar series will help prepare the graduating Doctor of Physical Therapy to contribute to the field of physical therapy in any area of professional practice, including clinical practice, education, administration, professional service, and research. Students will reflect upon and analyze the role these areas of practice play in shaping clinical education and the profession of physical therapy. Students will also explore current professional issues such as ethics, evidence-based practice, and generic professional abilities, as well as prepare for entry into the professional job market. The seminars will provide a rich source of ideas for the development of a culminating clinical education project to be implemented during Stage II of the final affiliation (see DPT 660) and for the development of their future careers as potential leaders in the profession.
