DPT 6720 Physical Therapy Practice II

Lecture: 0 Lab: 0 Practica: 15 Total Credits: 15
This 12-week intermediate clinical experience builds upon the knowledge and skills obtained during the first clinical experience (DPT 6530  ) to advance evidence-based patient management and clinical reasoning skills and exhibit characteristics of an adult learner and medical professional. Direct patient care experiences under the guidance of a Clinical Faculty (CF) in a collaborative learning environment include patient and family education, case presentations, staff in-services, community outreach and all aspects of the patient management model appropriate to the setting. Structured learning experiences and frequent problem-based assignments as part of the curriculum complement focused lab time and learning opportunities aside from patient care in the clinical setting. Students continue membership in the APTA and increase involvement at the state chapter and national level. By the conclusion of this intermediate clinical experience, the student is expected to demonstrate “Always” in Professional Behavioral Skills and achieve >80% of patient management skills rated “At That Level for All Patients” on the Clinical Internship Evaluation Tool (CIET) as evaluated by the CF. Student performance will also be assessed using evaluation tools and functional patient outcomes.
