PT 705 Professional Experience III 5 sem. hrs.
This is the third of four clinical education experiences within the curriculum. Professional Experience III provides the student the opportunity to participate in a physical therapy practice that per-tains to the care of individuals across the lifespan, with emphasis on those who experience acute or chronic neurological, integumentary, and/or cardiopulmonary dysfunctions. Professional experience III primarily occurs in an inpatient acute, post-acute, or rehabilitation practice setting. Some students may participate in an inpatient or outpatient pediatric or a community based neurological/general medicine rotation. Under the direct guidance of a licensed physical therapist/clinical mentor, students are responsible for the examination, evaluation, diagnostic, prognostic and intervention components for patient care. Students are expected to function as part of a multi-disciplinary team, and to participate in practice management activities. The specific content will vary depending upon the learning experiences available and the perceived or declared readiness of each student.
