PTA255 Clinical Education Experience I
The focus of this full-time clinical education experience is to introduce the student to a physical therapy clinical setting for the first time. Prior to the first day of clinical attendance, the student will complete a series of lab activities and foundational skill checkoffs to ensure safety and competency. During the clinical experience, the student works under the direct supervision of a licensed physical therapist or physical therapist assistant in an approved facility. The facility provides learning experiences consistent with the student's level of knowledge. The clinical education experience allows opportunities to implement the knowledge and skills acquired in the classroom/laboratory setting.
