Curriculum and Clinical Experience
We offer an integrated, case-based curriculum designed to foster critical clinical decision making, effective evidence-based interventions, and professionalism. Real-life cases are used to foster applied learning of basic sciences (e.g., anatomy) with clinical sciences (e.g., orthopedics), in the context of sociobehavioral sciences (e.g., culture).
Cross-Curricular Threads such as clinical decision making and evidence-based practice are woven throughout the curriculum to promote development of your ability to function as a skilled physical therapist upon graduation. Learn more about these integrated cross-curricular threads as well as our year-long, full-time, paid internship for the majority of students.
Team-based learning approaches are used throughout our curriculum to foster active engagement of course material and competency-based mastery. Students are responsible for coming to class prepared to discuss cases and apply didactic knowledge learned outside of class.
