Student Contribution Projects in the Clinic
Includes a brief slide show with some new perspectives on how to approach student contribution projects in the clinic, which are required for all of our clinical experiences. Is there an ongoing Quality Improvement project that the staff hasn't had time to complete? Do you need assistance getting the APTA Clinical Site Information Form (CSIF) completed? These are just a couple of alternative ideas that are presented here to complement the traditional idea of student inservices. In addition, you will find a "Project Brainstorming" form for staff to add ideas to as needs are identified.

Student Scientific Inquiry Summaries
After identifying topics of interest, our 3rd year PT students composed summaries of the evidence on their topics, each only 1-2 pages long. Reading these is a quick way to catch up on what the literature says. Topics include:
- Therapeutic taping: Would you like to know what the evidence says about shoulder and knee taping?
- Modalities: Click on these items to review literature summaries of various physical agents
- Lumbar stabilization: How much does the evidence support lumbar stabilization?
