The Sunk Cost Fallacy (A Cerasoli Lecture)

The is the recorded Pauline Cerasoli Lecture delivered at CSM 2017.

Although a younger health profession, physical therapist programs’ admissions, education, and post-graduation strategies have long been driven by traditions, assumptions, and prototypicality. This lecture will focus on many of these traditions by examining contrasts with other health professions and what is advocated within the literature. The lecture will provide suggestions on improving physical therapist programs' admissions, education, and post-graduation strategies and will advocate for a reverse strategy (looking at the successful clinician, then working backwards) in designing educational experiences.
