Credits: 7

Course Description:

Clinical Education II is the second in a series of four full-time clinical education experiences. It is eight weeks long and is a required course for all DPT students. This course will provide students with the opportunity to apply their previously learned knowledge and skills to a physical therapy setting, under the supervision and mentorship of a licensed physical therapist (Clinical Instructor). Over the course of the Clinical Education series, students will be exposed to inpatient and outpatient practice settings. As students’ progress through their four clinical education experiences, it is expected that they will evolve professionally, as demonstrated by their clinical performance. Culminating clinical education experiences are based on the unique needs and professional goals of students, and the availability of clinic sites.
