Clinical education experiences are planned to reflect the above variety of practice settings and experiences. Students are required to complete clinical experiences in which they manage patients with health care needs at various levels of acuity and in different clinical environments, while interacting with various compositions of health care teams. For Clinical Education I and II students are assigned to two different clinical environments to work with a broad array of patients/clients in both inpatient and outpatient settings. The Clinical Internship will allow students to gain clinical expertise in the student's area of interest; orthopedics, adult neuro-rehabilitation, pediatrics or cardiopulmonary physical therapy.
