DPT 737 Integrated Clinical Experience I
Part-time placement at an affiliating clinical education site under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist
This is a part-time clinical education experience, occurring during the first semester in the program (Spring I). The clinical experience is scheduled in conjunction with classroom time that provides the student with the knowledge and skills to perform successfully in the clinical environment. The focus of an integrated clinical experience is based on the foundation of clinical practice, with emphasis on concurrent classroom/laboratory content. Students have the opportunity to apply recently learned knowledge and skills in a clinical environment with real patients. Facilitation from Physical Therapy Clinical Faculty will assist in the utilization of these skills in critically analyzing a variety of real patient and clinical scenarios. This experience begins the process of professional socialization and cultivation of interpersonal communication skills; self-assessment; and proactive learning prior to the initiation of the full time clinical experience.
