Course Description

This course will focus on the development of clinical reasoning skills with an emphasis on Evidenced-Based Research and Classification Systems. Each student will be asked to conduct research associated with an unfolding case study, determine pathology based on a clinical picture including medical diagnostic test results, evaluate clinical data presented in video and written formats, select tests and measurements, formulate impairments and functional limitations, develop a physical therapy diagnosis, and plan of care. At predetermined intervals, students will be asked to compare and contrast their clinical reasoning with that of an expert clinician. All physical therapy graduate courses (number 34.) are restricted to PT majors only.
