PT 902 - Professional Issues II

(1)
Through a variety of active learning exercises, readings, discussions and reflective writing, this course is designed to facilitate awareness to oneself as a unique individual who is the product of multiple influences. We will explore some of the influences of family, culture, and society on the development of your “self”. The physical therapy profession has its own set of influences. It brings to you its own unique combination of history, roles, skills, laws, ethics, and practice standards. The process of developing your professional identity, with intention, takes time, and requires gaining insight into three main areas: 1.) your self, 2.) your chosen profession - physical therapy, and 3.) your role as a professional. Professional Issues 1 (PT901) addressed the Profession. During this semester, you will be examining your “self-identity” towards the development of a professional identity. Course content includes communication skills (verbal, nonverbal, and written), individual and cultural differences, professional behavior and abilities, ethics, legal issues, and responsibility for professional development.
