Pee Dee AHEC: Partnering with Horry Georgetown Technical College, Grand Strand Campus for Continuing Education

Dr. Tammy Marcin, Academic Chair and Professor, and Samantha Martel, Associate Professor, of the Physical Therapist Assistant Program of the Grand Strand Campus of Horry Georgetown Technical College are partnering with Pee Dee AHEC to provide continuing education for their 40 instructors and 40 students. “Clinical Neuroanatomy for Rehabilitation: Lesions, Impairments, and Treatment Interventions” will be presented September 13 on the Grand Strand campus. This course will review neuroanatomy as it relates to rehabilitation for occupational and physical therapy practice. A variety of impairments as related to lesion sites will be discussed via case studies. Treatment interventions based on evidence-based practice will be offered as options for patient care. The World Health Organization (WHO) International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) will be used as a framework for delivery of care in neurorehabilitation.

A second continuing education program will be presented on November 14 and 15 entitled, “Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program” (CCIP), in which new and experienced physical therapist and physical therapists assistants will be certified in clinical education. This course is offered under auspices of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). To be eligible to attend this course, participants must complete and submit the participant dossier to the credentialed instructor prior to taking the course.
