About Clinical Rotations
Supervised clinical experiences or clinical rotations are of critical importance to a successful learning experience for our students. Students in the program are required to complete two integrated clinical experiences in orthopedics/sports and neuro/geriatrics/peds.
Additionally, students must complete three 10-week full-time clinical experiences. Full-time experiences will include inpatient, outpatient, and student choice. Under the supervision of clinical instructors, students will progressively develop the skills and clinical judgment necessary to become a practicing PT.
