On June 7th, Darin White, PT, DPT, ECS met with the physical therapy and occupational therapy students at University of Tennessee, Chattanooga for a morning of “shockingly” good fun and learning. Students were taught the basics of nerve and muscle physiology as well as nerve pathology followed by a lab experience in which each student had the opportunity to perform a median nerve study on each other. One student commented, “He was very helpful and used in class demonstrations which were really cool.” Another student stated, “He was very knowledgeable about the material and gave very helpful examples to understand some of the very complex concepts. I enjoyed listening to his lecture and learning more about EMG and nerve studies.”
The Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) requires Physical Therapy schools educate their students in clinical electrophysiology (Standards and Required Elements for Accreditation of Physical Therapist Education Programs, Standard 7, 7D19, citation 52). EMG Solutions offers a basic course with included laboratory experience that meets your CAPTE requirements. If your school is located in the Southeastern United States and is interested in partnering with EMG Solutions to educate your students in clinical EMG/NCS, contact us through our website at https://emgsolutions.com/contact-us/ or by calling 334-318-9023.
