DPT 880 Clinical Immersion II

Second of two integrated clinical education courses that are embedded within the first 6 didactic semesters of the DPT curriculum. These courses will focus on clinical practice with students working individually or in pairs with a clinical faculty member (i.e. physical therapist clinical instructor) to apply skills, demonstrate clinical problem-solving and assume professional roles in various patient care settings (based on their level of clinical experience). In this second course, students will be expected to demonstrate skills and knowledge gained from the first 5 semesters of coursework. This course is completed in the classroom (information sessions) and at affiliated clinical facilities during the fifth semester in Year 2 for a total of 160 clinical hours.

Two semester hours.
