Motor Control Framework

Curriculum in the DPT program is built around the Motor Control Framework (MCF), developed by Northwestern faculty, which enables students to diagnose and treat movement dysfunction. Students develop skills in observing and describing movement based on the movement continuum. Students integrate knowledge about the person, task and environment to generate hypotheses that direct the examination and plan of care. Evidence-based practice principles are embedded throughout the entire process.;
