Entrepreneurship has been defined as "the pursuit of opportunity beyond resources controlled,"쳌 a trait that has been identified in physical therapy. Many PTs have elements of entrepreneurship in their daily practice, whether it is independent, corporate, or social. While educators teach the principles of management, leadership, and professional development, many do not specifically discuss entrepreneurship. Engaging PT and PTA students to identify these qualities and organize their thought processes results in a better understanding of how to implement administration principles in both corporate and independently owned settings.
This session covers the practices of entrepreneurs and how they are incorporated in a curriculum using the Lean Canvas model, a succinct approach to designing a business model. This style of teaching involves active learning from the student in small groups to elucidate the practices of entrepreneurs. Through lecture, discussion, and small-group activity, the presenters will demonstrate how these practices are sprinkled throughout the administration and other courses in the curriculum. Student survey outcome data will reinforce the concepts.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1. Describe the practices of entrepreneurs.

2. Communicate the importance of incorporating entrepreneurship education into PT and PTA curricula and practice.

3. Use the Lean Canvas model as a template for structuring entrepreneurship and administration principles.

4. Implement small-group activities into the administration courses of PT and PTA curricula.
