Education and Volunteer Flyer
UPT faculty clinicians contribute core teaching to the Doctor of Physical Therapy. These efforts include preparation and presentation of hundreds of hours of lecture and laboratory materials each year. Additionally, UPT is dedicated to the clinical education of PT students through:
- Clinic observation time
- Integrated Clinical Experience (I.C.E.)
- Clinical internship
- Clinical Residency Program
The faculty of the Division of Physical Therapy is committed to developing residents who are recognized leaders within their specialty area of choice. Residents will develop excellence in examination, diagnosis, intervention, consultation, teaching and the integration of best evidence into the patient care they provide within their special area of interest. They will develop as a resource for the community in prevention and rehabilitation of orthopedic conditions and will contribute to the profession through teaching, writing and leadership. Graduates of the residency program will be fully prepared to sit for their specialty certification examination.
