Integrated Clinical Experience II

This integrated clinical experience course entails the analysis and synthesis of physical therapy concepts, skills, and values utilizing clinical experiences in the on-site clinic. Students work closely with clinical instructors (CIs) to participate in the examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis and intervention processes of individuals with impairments, functional limitations or changes in physical function resulting from a variety of neurological or musculoskeletal disorders. The course includes a weekly seminar designed to build on prior coursework with a focus on synthesis of academic and clinical work in best practice for patient management. In addition, the seminars prepare students for their clinical internships in terms of discussing logistics, professionalism, and non-patient care aspects of physical therapy.
