PT 210 PTA Clinical Practicum II

This course is a supervised learning experience in a selected physical therapy setting in which previously taught information is integrated under the supervision of a clinical physical therapist or physical therapist assistant. This course is designed to teach students the necessary skills for physical therapy patient care and to build on the skills and knowledge learned in PT 206 . These skills include but are not limited to active, passive, and resistive exercise programs, as well as continued practice in the delivery of modalities, gait training, transfer training, proper documentation, and overall patient safety. Students will also learn the fundamentals of clinical education by providing an in-service to the therapy staff on a topic that is agreed upon by the student and Clinical Instructor. Through reflective journaling, the student will be challenged to identify how his/her personal value system/worldview facilitates conduct that reflects practice standards that are legal, ethical and safe and delivery of care in a compassionate and altruistic manner in the clinical environment. 4 hrs
