Cases will be selected to emphasize situations that students might encounter in entry-level practice.


Student Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, for the most likely diagnoses for diseases and injuries of the neurological, musculoskeletal, and ophthalmological systems, students will be able to:



  • Analyze clinical data

  • Propose further evaluations needed for the case

  • Develop ordered differential diagnosis list

  • Describe potential treatment strategies 

  • Prepare written client instructions for case management
