Abstract

This article describes the solution to a logistical problem involving the assignment of multiple clinical experiences to students in an undergraduate physical therapy course. Physical therapy faculty members collaborated with a computer programmer to formulate a computer program that would satisfy the organizational needs imposed by this problem. We suggest that the skills of the physical therapist combined with those of a computer programmer can be used to generate effective, computer-based solutions to many other problems related to the organization of data and to decision making in physical therapy.
