Examination and Treatment I

SAR AT 510

Prereq: (SAR HS 369 or SAR HS 581). MSAT students only. Coreq: (SAR AT 520). This three-semester course sequence provides the student a process for prevention, examination, diagnosis, and treatment of patients. The course begins with the study of the basic principles and underlying theories relating to examination and treatment techniques and applies them to examination, diagnosis, and management of patients in acute distress. Includes certification in emergency cardiac care. Students must register for two sections: lecture and laboratory. 4 cr.

Functional Anatomy

SAR AT 520

Prereq: (SAR HS 369 or SAR HS 581). Coreq: (SAR AT 510). Builds on previous knowledge of human musculoskeletal anatomy to examine human movement. Principles of biomechanics, connective tissue behavior, and muscle physiology are integrated with joint structure and function to form the basis of understanding normal and pathological movement. Students must register for two sections: lecture and discussion. 4 cr.

Clinical Experience III

SAR AT 599

Provides students with interprofessional experience with primary care providers. Features an emphasis on examination and treatment of patients with non-musculoskeletal conditions. 2 cr.

Prereq: (SAR PT 511, SAR PT 512, SAR PT 521, SAR PT 522, & SAR PT 532). This course identifies and describes various modes of imaging techniques and tests used in medical practice for the neuromusculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and pulmonary systems. The process of diagnosis in the context of the physical therapist's practice is discussed. Identification of basic radiological pathology and test results that directly impact physical therapy care and prognostication are emphasized, as well as integration of test/imaging results in the physical therapy evaluation and plan of care. Correlation of test results with clinical examination findings are emphasized to allow the student to engage in professional dialogue with other health care providers. Variable cr.
