PT 502 - Introduction to Clinical Decision Making
(3 cr.) This course integrates basic information obtained through case study information, students' experience in PT 300-301 (Introduction to PT Process I and II) and their previous four-week clinical experience. Students generate in small groups problem-based learning experiences, a basic problem list and therapy goals utilizing the Guide to Physical Therapy Practice. Students discuss sets of prewritten clinical cases in the presence of a faculty adviser who utilizes the Guide to Physical Therapy Practice as a framework for discussion, evaluation and treatment intervention appropriate to the problems and goals identified. This case-based learning experience allows students to gain a basic understanding of clinical protocol and its application to effectively prepare them for their clinical course work in the fall of the second graduate year. (2 lecture hrs. 2 lab hrs.) Every Year, Fall
