Policies and Procedures

Student clinical internships will follow cognitive, psychomotor, and affective preparedness and predetermined curriculum milestones to assure students are prepared for the area they will be asked to practice as students of physical therapy. Students will be required to complete three diverse 12-week full time clinical affiliations at the end of each curricular year. Clinical internships may include but are not limited to skilled nursing home facilities, in-patient rehabilitation, outpatient rehabilitation, acute care, hospital, home health, and school settings. In their last clinical internship,  students will have the option of exploring specialty areas of  practice including neurology, pediatrics, research, community health, sports medicine, geriatrics, industrial rehabilitation, wound care, women's health, hippotherapy, lymphedema management, and aquatic therapy. Students will graduate with an entry-level degree to practice as autonomous practitioners of physical therapy.
