Clinical Education

temp

 

The clinical education component of the curriculum in physical therapy is essential to the development of the physical therapy student. Clinical experiences provide the student with the opportunity to integrate academic course work with practical experiences in the clinical setting. The clinical experience is the primary opportunity the student has to practice the art and science of physical therapy.

There are four clinical experiences scheduled throughout the curriculum. The first occurs in the summer between the first and second year of professional study. Clinical Experiences II through IV encompass the third year of professional study for a total of 42 weeks of clinical experience. In order to provide a well-rounded experience, students affiliate at a variety of practice settings which include acute-care hospitals, long-term care facilities, outpatient facilities, private practices, rehabilitation hospitals, home health care, and school-based practices. The program affiliates with over 400 clinical facilities throughout the country, representing the breadth of Physical Therapy practice.
