  • SAR PT 794: Clinical Education Seminar III
    Undergraduate Prerequisites: SAR PT792
    This course is the final in a series of three seminars related to clinical education experiences of students in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program. The content is rooted in professional behaviors, ethics, and the core values of accountability, altruism, compassion/ caring, excellence, integrity, professional duty, and social responsibility in the practice of physical therapy. The seminars are designed to bridge clinical and classroom experiences in these areas through the use of discussion, reflective learning, real-life examples, and collaborative learning. Some information covered in previous seminars will be explored again in light of additional clinical experience in a different setting. In addition, this final course will also provide tools to assist the student with the transition to becoming a professional physical therapist including attaining licensure and employment and developing a plan for ongoing professional development.
  • SAR PT 900: Neuro Residency
  • SAR PT 901: Neuro Residency
  • SAR PT 902: Manualtherapy
  • SAR PT 903: Manualtherapy 2
  • SAR RS 650: Foundations of Rehabilitation Sciences
    This course provides an overview of the field of rehabilitation science and an introduction to the social constructs of disability with an emphasis on bio-psycho-social-environmental models of the enabling-disabling process across the life course. The historical, philosophical and theoretical foundations of Rehabilitation Science and the evolution of laws and policies related to rehabilitation that inform the ethical, funding, and social implications of rehabilitation research are analyzed. The course will also provide an in-depth understanding of person-environment interactions and the link between biomedical factors and community participation.
  • SAR RS 750: Research Design
    This course serves as an introduction into research designs relevant to rehabilitation science. The first set of sessions provides the background and framework for understanding the reasoning behind different research designs. The remaining sessions focus on various categories of research designs, the types of research questions these designs address, and the types of data analyses that are appropriate to the designs. The course content is integrated with the content students received in Philosophy of Rehabilitation Science. Format of sessions are lecture, discussion, and experiential. Student assignments are individualized to student areas of mentored research. Student presentations are integrated into the topics presented according to the class schedule.
  • SAR RS 870: Emerging Topics
    A seminar for doctoral students that focuses on a different topic each semester.
  • SAR RS 890: Doctoral Seminar in Rehabilitation Sciences
    This seminar allows for a discussion of topics of interest to doctoral-level students in the PhD program in Rehabilitation Sciences, and is designed to provide insight in 1) curricular aspects of the PhD program, 2) mentor-mentee relationship, 3) skills necessary for PhD graduates entering the field of rehabilitation sciences with a research doctorate, and 4) interdisciplinary nature of the field of rehabilitation. This course enhances the student's ability to successfully complete the PhD program by working on skills needed to write and critically review IRB proposals, research manuscripts and research grant proposals, to outline ethical dilemmas in research, to formulate and disseminate a line of inquiry, and to distinguish various career paths. Literature addressing these issues will be used throughout to illustrate the arguments.
