Important Information regarding the University of Mary Clinical Education Program

Prior to the Clinical experience you should receive an email from University of Mary:

·         Demographic information sheet on the student, which can aid in preliminary planning and setting of mutually agreeable clinical objectives. 

·         A 2015 year tag to place on the University of Mary clinical education plaque. If you are a new site you will be receiving a plaque If we have erred and have not sent you a plaque previously, please let me know and I will send one out to you.   

·         Record of student immunizations

 

If a federal criminal backgroundcheck is required by your facility, please ask the student for their access code.  They can print off their record for you on site. 

As soon as possible please email me ( jleckert@umary.edu )the email address of the assigned Clinical Instructor for the abovestudent (s) so we can enter them into CPI database.  I will be contacting the site CI at mid-term via email or phone call to assess the student’s progress or I will contact you ahead of time if arrangements can be made for a personal visit.  Students are required to either present an in service to your staff or to assist in aproject that is needed by your facility (protocol development, community education, marketing strategies, etc.). Don’t hesitate to discuss your needs with the student. I also encourage you to ask the student about their required on-line discussion forum and to become involved in this – it is a unique and fun way to assist others in solving challenging clinical scenarios.  Please feel free to contact meat any time if you have questions or concerns.

The primary performance expectations for each student participating in PTH 700 are: by the end of the experience, and with the assistance of the clinical instructor, to demonstrate the ability to perform and document a comprehensive patient examination; develop a physical therapy diagnosis, prognosis, and plan of care; and complete each intervention included in that plan of care of a non-complex patient. Non-complex patients are those with limited pathologies and impairments, resulting in limited functional limitations and disabilities. Students, with increased guidance from the clinical instructor, can also complete the above mentioned objectives with complex pat ients.
