Evidence Based Practice III
6122   Evidence Based Practice III                                
Prerequisite(s): Semester III courses.
   The purpose of this course is to prepare and equip uniformed services physical therapists with the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to practice evidence-based physical therapy throughout their career. This is the third installment of a four-part course (EBP I-IV) that develops the elements that serve as the foundation of evidence-based practice. This course builds upon the foundation established in EBP I and II. EBP III focuses on the concepts of evidence-based practice with particular emphasis in EBP I and II. EBP III focuses on the concepts of evidence-based practice with particular emphasis on critical appraisal of the literature. The evaluative approach to appraising the studies on prognosis and the evaluation of harm will prepare students to judge the evidence on the natural history of medical conditions and risk of harm from select pharmacological and therapeutic interventions. The focus of this course will be on the tests, interventions, and prognosis in patients with neurological and cardiopulmonary disorders.

PT 6206
Cardiopulmonary P T
6206   Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy                            
Prerequisite(s): Semester II courses.
   The purpose of this course is to prepare you to consider the cardiovascular system an integral component of all patients, not solely those patients who have manifest cardiovascular disease. Every patient that you will encounter will have an impairment that is affecting the cardiopulmonary system in varying degrees. A firm understanding of the principles presented in this course will provide you with a framework to address all patient types from orthopaedic, neurologic, pediatric or cardiopulmonary. The primary emphasis is how therapeutic exercise can be used in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, including the effects of exercise on other established risk factors. You will receive instruction in principles of cardiopulmonary exercise physiology and how these principles can help guide you as you prescribe exercise in a variety of patients. Physical Therapy assessment of patients with cardiovascular disease is addressed, as are the diagnostic imaging, and the medical (including pharmacological) and surgical management of these patients. Recommended staffing and operation of a cardiac rehabilitation service is presented, and techniques to maximize patient compliance with the Physical Therapy prescription are reviewed.

Exec.Skills Physical Therapist
6280   Executive Skills for Physical Therapists                  
Prerequisite(s): Semester III courses.
   This course is designed to help junior officer physical therapists develop their executive skills for future clinic leadership/management and for their future leadership positions. The course is the study of management leadership theory and concepts drawn from the behavioral and social sciences and applied to leadership and management in the diagnosis, prediction and analysis of human behavior in organizations. In addition to helping students understand and address change in their own leadership styles, the course addresses change theory, strategic planning, and consulting. The course also includes elements of clinic design and management, continuous quality improvement, legal and legislative issues in physical therapy, and consulting/health promotion. This course is specific to graduates' needs as new Army/Air Force/Navy/Public Health physical therapists. The course has been tailored to the work of a physical therapy professional, where a large part of the position is dealing with people, including patients, personnel, supervisors, third party payers and other professionals. These same skills developed, as a junior officer, will serve the officer well in various future assignments with increased levels of responsibilities. This Executive Skills course is also closely aligned with the LAMP (leadership, administration, management preparation) skills identified by the APTA Section on Administration.

PT 6281
PT in Deployed Environments
6281   Physical Therapy in Deployed Environments
Prerequisite(s): Semester III courses.
   This course is designed to prepare uniformed service physical therapy students for their roles and responsibilities while deployed for combat operations and support/sustainment operations. The purpose of this course is derived from the principle of "Sports Medicine on the Battlefield...operational readiness through injury prevention and early intervention" developed at the United States Military Academy, West Point, New York. The concepts for managing injured elite athletes and returning them to the playing field as quickly and safely as possible share the goal of returning injured soldiers to their units in garrison or combat. This course provides students an opportunity to develop core-advanced competencies in orthopaedic triage and management of acute musculoskeletal and neurological injuries while deployed. These same evidence-based competencies are used to return injured soldiers - "tactical athletes" - to a high level of military technical and tactical readiness. This course also brings students to an advanced level of understanding in general medicine topics (triage, differential diagnosis, and orthopaedics) and methods of tracking procedures and patient outcomes.

Neuroscience
6313   Neuroscience                                                
Prerequisite(s): Semester II courses.
   Neuroscience is a formidably comprehensive discipline that combines neurobiology, molecular science, psychology, neuroanatomy, and neurophysiology.  This course fosters an understanding of human perception and movement from a basic science level.  It complements Neuroanatomy instruction and emphasizes the functional aspects of various neural systems. Normal peripheral and central nervous system function and the pathophysiology of various neurological disorders is discussed. Both a conceptual understanding of the principles of CNS organization and some memorization of specific nuclei and pathways is required.  The primary end state of this course is a solid understanding of nervous system structure and function and a foundation that allows students to master future concepts that will be presented in the Neuromuscular Physical Therapy and the Lifespan Physical Therapy courses.

Adv Therapeutic Interventions
6354   Advanced Therapeutic Interventions
Prerequisite(s): Semester III courses.
   The purpose of this course is to prepare and equip physical therapists with advanced therapeutic intervention skills to be used in the management of the musculoskeletal system. Short lectures will be presented to emphasize the key issues and current evidence regarding manual therapy and therapeutic exercise. An emphasis will be placed on skill advancement for clinical decision-making, developing and progressing integrated treatment plans, and honing the motor skills necessary for the effective application of spinal and extremity manipulation and exercise. Case scenarios will be presented in a small group format. Key elements of the history and physical examination as they relate to the musculoskeletal system and clinical decision-making will be emphasized. Students will be required to demonstrate with proficiency a variety of manipulation and exercise procedures to their small group that would be indicated within the context of the case scenario. In addition, skill laboratories, which provide a core set of manipulative and exercise procedures for each body region, will be presented and practiced to proficiency.
