Pitt PT: Emergency Medical Response for Non-EMS Personnel
February 1 @ 8:00 am - February 2 @ 4:30 pm
Speaker: Rick Joreitz PT, DPT, SCS, ATC
Physical therapists who work with athletes on and off the field need to excel in the acute management of injuries and illnesses commonly seen in the sports medicine setting. This course tests your competency in this subject, as part of the Sports Description of Specialty Practice (DSP). The course will consist of a didactic and lab component, reviewing the recognition and appropriate care of athletes in emergent situations both on and off the field. A written test and lab practical will assess proficiency in each area. All proceeds from this course will be donated to the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research as a part of the VCU-Marquette Challenge!
