AHPT 830 - Clinical Experience I

Credits: (9)
Prerequisites: Successful completion of fall course content areas taught in the first year of the DPT program, or permission of the Department.
Clinical Experience I is the first in a series of courses designed to provide physical therapy students with an opportunity to apply the first year of didactic learning through real world experience. This is the first of a series of three clinical experiences. It requires a full time commitment each week over the course of the clinical experience. The learning outcomes of the clinical education process are based on the hierarchical pattern of coursework. This initial clinical internship emphasizes basic examination, evaluation, and treatment intervention skills primarily found in nursing homes, inpatient rehabilitation facilities and outpatient rehabilitation clinical sites. Each student will be assigned an on-site Licensed Physical Therapist referred to as a Clinical Instructor (CI). The CI will provide individual supervision during the clinical experience. As the student becomes more competent, the student will assess problems, practice evaluation skills, formulate patient goals and apply treatment techniques.
