This course is designed to give the physical therapist assistant student the opportunity to learn and practice fundamental assessments, patient care skills and procedures. Students are instructed in data collection skills, treatment intervention skills, and procedures. Students then have the opportunity to perform these skills in the laboratory setting with student-to-student practice. Students must demonstrate competency in performing these skills, procedures and assessments in the laboratory setting prior to performing them in a clinical setting.
