Case Rounds Journal Club

The University of Delaware Physical Therapy Department sponsors a Case Round series for all physical therapists treating in the orthopedic community.  The purpose of the Case Rounds are to critically review the current literature on topics of particular interest to orthopedic patient care.  A patient case will be presented and articles on the patient topic will be discussed in relation to evidenced based practice in physical therapy.  We encourage participation and case submissions from the orthopedic community.  This program will be held at the University of Delaware Physical Therapy Clinic on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 7-8AM so that clinicians can return to their respective clinics in time for their morning patients.
