Upper and Lower Extremity Consultation Clinic

Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy students have an opportunity to complete a comprehensive consultation for individuals in the UNE community with an upper and lower extremity challenge. This learning opportunity provides a deeper understanding into the upper and lower extremities, and how conditions impact performance in day to day life for each person. This clinic provides a hands on learning opportunity for students to participate in an evaluative consultation, allowing them to use their acquired foundational and advanced knowledge to then provide either a treatment plan or consultation report to each client that addresses their unique needs.
