Credits: 8

Course Description:

This ten week full-time affiliation takes place in a rehabilitation facility, pediatric setting, sports medicine clinic, hospital facility, long-term care/sub-acute facility or other specialty setting. At this stage, the student is required to demonstrate increased flexibility and efficiency in performing skills under various circumstances. Internalization of professional ethics and values should be evidenced through exemplary professional behavior. The student is required to progress from treating 50% of a full caseload with less than 50% supervision and occasional guidance to treating a full caseload with 25% supervision and consultation for complex and unusual cases. (Note: Selected specialty rotations, such as pediatrics, may require 12 rather than 10 weeks.)
