Promoting collaboration in care

Physical therapy and medical students join forces to learn how to improve treatment services

Contact: ​Jeff Johnston

​​Physical therapy students at Central Michigan University recently joined forces with students from the university's College of Medicine to explore how professionals across the health care industry can work together to improve patient treatment.

Second-year medical students divided into small groups with their peers from The Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow College of Health Professions to learn how to assess musculoskeletal injuries in their patients. With guidance from faculty, students from the physical therapy doctoral program assisted fellow CMED students learn how to conduct a basic examination looking for common signs of pain, weakness, range of motion loss or injury.

It was a chance for participants to practice their skills and use the knowledge passed on to them during classes. ​
