This is the third of four full-time clinical experiences (Practicums PT 881, 882, 883 and Internship PT 884). Each
clinical experience will be in a different practice setting with locations available throughout the U.S. During
this six-week practicum the student will be under the supervision of a clinical instructor and begin to develop
proficiency at applying skills learned in the classroom. These skills include all components of professional
practice and patient/client management (safety, professional behavior, accountability, communication,
cultural competence, professional development, clinical reasoning, screening, examination, evaluation,
diagnosis and prognosis, plan of care, procedural and educational interventions, documentation, outcomes
assessment, financial resource management, and management of support personnel).
