PT 621 Clinical Education III, 6 credits

This ten-week, full-time clinical education experience (October-December) immediately follows Clinical Education II. This experience builds upon previous clinical education experiences. Patient evaluation and intervention skills should be fine-tuned. Additional emphasis should be placed upon addressing clinical decision-making, goal setting, functional outcome measures, modification of intervention plans, and the role of physical therapy in a dynamic health care system. Students should seek, where possible, opportunities in teaching, critical inquiry/research, administration/management, and quality assurance.

Prerequisite: PT 619. Fall
