The purpose of this clinical placement is to provide the student with opportunity for practical application of the foundational sciences and the clinical problems skills studied in the first three years of professional class work. Students will have opportunity to synthesize and evaluate the five elements of patient client management (examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, plan of care and intervention) for patients with multi-system failure, including integumentary, musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, and neuromuscular (Pediatrics and Adult) conditions. These skills will be performed under the direct supervision of a licensed practicing clinician. This ten week assignment can occur in a variety of rural and/or urban facilities.
