Interprofessional Education

Semester: Fall and Spring

Programs: Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy

Description: The Neurological Clinic was established in 2015 and serves persons living with chronic neurological conditions. Occupational Therapy (required - 1st year, fall semester and 2nd year, spring semester) and Physical Therapy students (required - 2nd year fall and spring semesters) have the opportunity to apply didactic knowledge and practice assessment and treatment clinical and collaborative skills within a safe learning environment. In 2018, the Clinic integrated an interprofessional collaborative practice component between the two programs. Examples included an interprofessional history intake session and a dedicated 15 minute handoff time between discipline sessions.
