Experience and Opportunities

Well-rounded education for versatile clinicians

Your education will include comprehensive curriculum, extensive clinical training and capstone experiences along with opportunities to publish and present your research.

We promote community engagement through service-learning projects,  integrated clinical experiences and pro bono work — all of which are incorporated at every phase of the program. You’ll have opportunities to conduct assessments of community partners, create interventions for specific patient groups and work with vulnerable populations. These experiences not only enrich your education, they also develop a commitment to community, which will grow and thrive throughout your career.

Facilities

We are housed in the McQueary Family Health Sciences Hall, an updated and airy building with classrooms, lockers, study areas and plenty of access to outdoor and green spaces. Our unique learning environments include: 

  • Exercise lab, equipped for orthopedic procedures and therapeutic exercises 
  • Modality lab, emphasizing a variety of modalities as well as prosthetics and orthotics training 
  • Multimedia classrooms with integrated instructional technology
