Students in the URI Clinical Doctorate in Physical Therapy Program are given the opportunity to develop leadership and consultation skills through addressing a comprehensive, community or organizational problem. Utilizing skills developed throughout the curriculum, students evaluate an environment, identify a problem, assess the feasibility of potential solutions, develop an action plan, and follow to see that plan implemented and evaluate the results. Students are encouraged to develop projects that utilize their unique skills, backgrounds and interests.
Examples of projects completed in the past and planned for the future include:
