All students are assigned to a team with a core faculty member serving as the team's coach. The team is the student's first family in the program, and the coach serves an important role in advising, coaching, and mentoring students through successes and challenges. You will meet your team and coach at the onsite orientation and learn more about the process! We believe this program will be essential for fostering academic success, maintaining clear and effective communication, and supporting a cohesive and collaborative culture among faculty and students who are often geographically separated.

Start

For more information on this module, please review sections 7.0-10.0 in the DPT Student Handbook. You may also reference the Graceland University Student Handbook for a full list of university policies.Next, you will complete a short quiz on what you have learned in Modules 1-5.

  • Students are required to wear attire that conforms to the image of a professional physical therapist. The Graceland University DPT Program defines business casual as dressing in a professional, relaxed, yet neat and pulled-together manner; a middle ground between formal business attire and casual wear. ​
  • Course syllabi will stipulate appropriate dress standards for lab activities as this may vary between courses. In general, loose fitting gym shorts, t-shirts or tank tops, appropriate undergarments, and sneakers or sandals are commonly required for lab sessions. Dress should be modest but allow students to expose areas for observation and palpation applicable to the specific laboratory experience. During laboratory sessions or service activities with the public, students should wear appropriate business casual attire. ​
  • Students should bring at least 1 business casual outfit to each lab immersion unless they are instructed otherwise. ​
  • During clinical education experiences, students must follow the facility-specific dress code policies of each clinical site to which they are assigned. ​

myGraceland Emergency Information

  • Everyone's safety and security is of utmost importance. If there is an emergency, call 911. ​
  • Visit Emergency Information on myGraceland to find Graceland Emergency Contacts, and Graceland Emergency Reference Guide, and to sign up for GUAlert. ​
  • Generally, faculty members should initiate the live online session no later than 15 minutes prior to the scheduled activity. In the event of weak, interrupted, or absent internet service, the lead faculty/instructor will notify all co-lead and associated faculty members and initiate the student notification system through the class leader. Lead faculty will provide all faculty members and students with an estimated start time. Students are required to remain online for 30 minutes after the scheduled start time to allow adequate time for notification and/or internet resolution. ​
  • It is expected that lab immersion sessions will begin on time. In the event the lead faculty/instructor has an illness or emergency, the lead faculty/instructor will notify the DPT Program Director so adjustments can be made to continue the onsite lab immersion sessions. ​

During lab immersions, students may bring water into the lab area in a container with a screw on lid or top. The eating and drinking of foods and beverages during the “hands-on” portion of the lab immersions is prohibited except in designated areas. ​

  • Any jewelry, including jewelry displayed as body piercings, that interferes with the student’s ability to perform class, lab, or clinic activities, or poses a safety concern for simulated or actual patients is prohibited. Students may be asked to remove excessive jewelry prior to learning or clinical activities. ​
  • Visual displaying of tattoos that offend a reasonable standard of decency (e.g., obscene, sexually explicit, vulgar) is prohibited. Such tattoos are required to be covered. During clinical education experiences, students must follow the facility-specific policies related to jewelry and tattoos. ​

It is a student responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of any information related to patients and/or clients. Students will receive training in protecting patient/client confidentiality and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) guidelines during Professional Competencies I in the first trimester.​

  • Students are expected to be present and on time for all scheduled learning sessions, lab immersions, and assessments. ​
  • Online coursework includes asynchronous and synchronous learning. Assignment completion dates/times and scheduled class times are mandatory. Please review the student handbook section 8.1.0 to learn more about excused vs unexcused absences.​
  • Onsite lab immersion sessions are strategically scheduled within each academic subsession. Student participation is mandatory for each onsite lab immersion. In addition to providing critical face-to-face learning activities for hands-on skill development, these sessions provide opportunities for academic and professional coaching with your faculty coach or other faculty, student services with administrative personnel, and social interactions with other students. More information about lab immersions will be provided during onsite orientation.​

Students are expected to adhere to the same professional conduct and behavioral standards when using social media as they use when interacting with others in any other medium (by phone, in person, via email, etc.). The use of social media for clinical discussions that include identifiable information related to patients or affiliated clinical facilities is prohibited. Additionally, a student is in violation of this policy when they use social media to slander, harass, demean, degrade, bully, discriminate, or threaten others and/or when postings are offensive to the prevalent standards of the university or its community. ​

  • In the case of a personal injury or medical emergency, lab instructors should be notified immediately. First Aid and Basic Life Support skills should be utilized by trained individuals as appropriate. AEDs are available onsite on the first floor of the Skillpath building and in the Atrium area next to the restrooms in the Independence building. Someone not attending to the medical emergency should call 911. ​
  • Lab instructors will determine if the individual needs to be transported to a local urgent care or emergency department. ​
  • Medical evaluation and/or treatment for injuries incurred is at the expense of the student. ​
  • An Accident/Incident Report form should be completed as soon as reasonably possible for any injuries sustained in lab or at a Graceland University activity off campus. ​
  • As a hybrid program, DPT students will have extensive access to audio and video-recorded lectures, handouts, and other printed or electronic media materials. These lectures and materials have been developed by or for Graceland University and the DPT program for the sole purpose of educating students enrolled in the program. ​
  • It is a violation of the Graceland University Student Conduct Code to communicate or distribute through any vehicle or media any materials recorded at or produced by or for Graceland University and the DPT Program to any other individuals, including Graceland University students. Violation of this policy may lead to academic dismissal. ​
  • Faculty and staff promote safe working conditions by following Graceland University Safety Guidelines.​
  • During DPT lab immersion sessions, practice sessions, and practical examinations, students will alternate in role-playing the physical therapist and the patient in clinical scenarios. As a patient, students will be exposed to physical therapy interventions and procedures delivered by fellow students. ​
  • These include, but are not limited to, physical agents such as ultrasound and electrical stimulation, therapeutic exercise, spinal and extremity joint manipulation, and trigger point dry needling. ​
  • During DPT clinical experiences and internships, students will be exposed to patients with infectious and communicable diseases, chronic and degenerative diseases, mental illness, and injury/illness risks associated to the work environment. ​
