DPT 881 Clinical Immersion, Interprofessional Practice and Civic Engagement III
Third in a series of 5 integrated clinical education courses that are embedded in the first 6 didactic semesters of the DPT curriculum. This series of courses will focus on clinical practice and/or collaborative practice (inter-professional education, civic engagement/activities, etc.). Students will work in teams, each with a clinical faculty member (e.g. physical therapist clinical instructor with a multidisciplinary team) and/or an academic faculty member, to apply skills, demonstrate clinical problem-solving and assume professional roles in various patient care settings (based on their level of clinical experience). Each semester, students will be expected to demonstrate skills and knowledge gained from the current and previous coursework. This course is completed at affiliated clinical facilities during 10 weeks (4 hours per week) of the 4th semester in Year 2 for a total of 40 hours. Students are expected to demonstrate clinical skills and didactic knowledge gained from semesters 1-4.
One semester hour.
