PT859/Lecture/2 - Clinical Education Experience III | Credits 6.00
This final portion of the terminal full-time clinical education experience is 12 weeks in length and occurs after all academic coursework, the first 12-week portion of the terminal clinical education experience, one full-time clinical education experience, part-time integrated clinical education during the first year of the program, and experiential learning opportunities. This culminating clinical education experience emphasizes clinical decision making as a critical component to the physical therapist management of any patient in any setting. Sound clinical decision making is key in preparing the student for entry level competence with multiple diagnoses. Because previous clinical education experiences were likely in different practice settings, close supervision and additional clinical teaching may be required initially in this practice setting. Emphasis is placed on developing good interpersonal skills with supervisors, patients, and other health care practitioners. It also focuses on oral and written communication skills, on performing physical therapy examinations, evaluations, intervention planning and implementation for patients with cardiac, pulmonary, neurological, medical/surgical and/or orthopedic conditions/diagnoses and on providing basic functional training. The student should become skilled in the role of a physical therapist in the interdisciplinary team and the responsibilities involved in managing a patient caseload.
