DPT 718: Pathophysiology II

Class Program
Credits 3
This course is the second of a two-course sequence that emphasizes for physical therapy students to recognize the physiology and pathophysiology of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems; as well as developmental, genetic, metabolic and neurologic disorders. Students are presented with approaches to basic medical assessments (e.g. diagnostic testing and laboratory values), management approaches that consider activity and exercise guidelines, and common medical interventions for conditions related to physical therapy practice. Clinical cases are discussed by students to reinforce the relevance to physical therapy practice.
