Physical Therapy Science I
This course is designed to allow the student to bring forward anatomy knowledge previously learned in prerequisite coursework and to apply it to the practice of physical therapy. This will be accomplished through six weekly online modules that will guide the student through the basics of anatomical surface palpation of bony structures, muscles, their actions, and attachments. These tasks and principles will be applied to the trunk and extremities using another person on whom to practice. Competence will be evaluated through the use of quizzes, assignments, and comprehensive multiple-choice midterm and final examinations.
