Fall Semester 2nd Year DPT Classes

Well, it is now official as classes have begun; I am a 2nd year student in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program. This semester is known to be the “toughest” semester of the program as it fully incorporates all of last years coursework into many critical thinking situations in class and in clinic. This semester entails 7 classes for a total of 16 credits. Classes include…

PTH 7102 Professional Development III: Third in a four course series focusing on the program’s requirement of professional behaviors development as an essential component of academic and clinical success. Using multidimensional assessment and evaluation, students will demonstrate sufficient integration and application of professional knowledge and behavioral skills for progression to the first full-time clinical internship.

PTH 7481 Critical Inquiry II: More advanced application of evidence based practice in physical therapy and related disciplines. Focus is on applying knowledge of statistics and research methodology to determine the appropriate incorporation of results into clinical practice.

PTH 7540 Musculoskeletal Evaluation & Management: Application of advanced physical therapy evaluation and interventions to patients/clients whose primary impairment or movement-limiting dysfunction is musculoskeletal in origin. Focus is on development of manual therapy techniques. Evidence-based practice and clinical decision making are incorporated as they relate to developing, monitoring and progression of a patient’s plan of care.

PTH 7545 Neuromuscular Evaluation and Management I: A comprehensive study of the integration of physiologic theories and principles with neuromuscular rehabilitation. Current theories relating to the control of normal and impaired movement are investigated and used to provide a framework for evaluation of and intervention for individuals with disability resulting from neurologic injury or disease. (Pre-requisites: successful completion of PTH first year)

PTH 7560 Cardiopulmonary Evaluation and Management: A comprehensive study of the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems. The patient/client management model is applied to dysfunctions specifically involving these systems across the life span and the continuum of care. Managing critically ill patients in the intensive care unit and principles of primary and secondary prevention are discussed.

PTH 7573 Psychosocial Issues In Physical Therapy: An interactive course relating psychosocial factors that affect patientpractitioner relationships. Topics include communication, cultural and ethnic issues affecting interactions, perspectives on health/wellness, response to impairments and disabilities, sexuality, substance abuse, violence to self and others, and spirituality. Through in class activities and assignments, students will be able to express their viewpoints and relate how the topics affect their professional development

PTH 7911 Patient Client Management II: Application of the patient/client management model. Information from previous and concurrent coursework is integrated into plan of care development for a patient / client with single or multiple system involvement under faculty guidance. Provides the opportunity for hands-on examination, evaluation, and intervention with patients in clinical settings. Students participate in a self and peer review process to develop professional performance analysis skills.

Stay tuned as the rigors of this course schedule are sure to bring on some great blog posts!
