PHYSICAL THERAPYP CLINICAL AFFILIATION ABROAD

This 3 unit elective course is designed to provide senior physical therapy students who have completed regular clinical affiliations the opportunity of additional clinical experience abroad (Greater Los Angeles Area, California, USA) and exposure to more advanced forms of physical therapy practice. The students are expected to successfully complete an 8-week long, full time, intensive clinical affiliation in participating facilities in the United States after a one-week orientation period. The students will be evaluated based on their clinical proficiency, i.e. their ability to 1) determine the physical therapy needs of any patient referred for intervention; 2) design, implement, manage and modify, as necessary, a physical therapy plan of care; 3) communicate with various members of the health care team; 4) engage in safe, ethical, and legal practices; 5) appropriately practice in a diverse cultural and ethnic environment.
