PTA* H258 - PTA in the Healthcare Arena


Credits: 2
This course develops the student’s ability to apply physical therapy interventions and data collection techniques within the PT’s plan of care in the clinic environment and advances the student’s abilities with communication, professional conduct, and problem solving within the physical therapy clinic. PTA in the Healthcare Arena uses the clinical environment as a framework for the application and synthesis of conceptual aspects of the work environment. Clinical education experiences are acquired in a weekly part-time integrated clinical experience and integrated into the classroom to illustrate the current health care delivery system’s impact on the field of physical therapy and the role of the physical therapist assistant. Throughout the semester students will learn to differentiate professional, legal, and ethical standards and analyze how these direct the delivery of patient care.

Prerequisite(s): PTA* H145, PTA* H150, PTA* H155 with a grade of “C” or higher
Corequisite(s): PTA* H251, PTA* H255.
