AHPT 870 - Clinical Experience II

Credits: (9)


Instructional Method: Internship.
Prerequisites: Successful completion of all prior coursework or with permission from the department.
This is the second in a series of three clinical experiences. It requires a full time commitment each week over the course of the clinical experience. The outcome of the clinical education process is based on the hierarchical pattern. Each clinical experience builds from previous didactic knowledge and clinical rotation experience by developing the student’s clinical knowledge, critical thinking skills, and practical application skills. The focus of this experience includes complex patient examination, evidence based care and treatment, use of critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills, professional behaviors and adult learning, as well as decision-making for medically complex patients.

Students will have the opportunity to practice the skills they have learned in supervised clinical settings including any previous setting not yet experienced within nursing homes and outpatient rehabilitation clinical sites as well as acute, inpatient rehabilitation or home health settings.
