This is the second full-time clinical experience for the graduate physical therapy student. During this eight week internship the student will be assessed on progress toward entry-level and independent functioning in a clinical setting. The student will be asked to delegate, supervise, and assess the impact of such delegation on patient outcomes. Emphasis will be placed on clinical decision making, documentation, patient management, and self-assessment. The student will be expected to consistently characterize professional behaviors, effective communication skills, and sensitivity to cultural diversity when delivering health care. They will be strengthening evaluative, diagnostic, and prognostic skills while approaching entry-level practice in many criteria on the CPI.
