DPT Clinical Experiences

Integrated Clinical Experiences

To integrate classroom and clinical learning, the MGH Institute DPT program offers intensive but supportive clinical education experiences. Full-time and part-time clinical experiences are integrated throughout the academic curriculum.

Full-time Clinical Experience

In the summer following year one, and in the winter of year two, you also participate in two, 10 week-long, full-time clinical experiences. For most students, your program will culminate in a year-long, full-time paid internship for your final year.

Clinical Affiliations

Thanks to our clinical education affiliations with high-quality health care systems and clinics in the Boston area and throughout the country, our students enjoy exceptional access to expert clinicians at the health centers that are setting the standards for physical therapy today. 

Our Partners HealthCare System affiliates include Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospitals, Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, Newton-Wellesley Hospital, and Partners Healthcare at Home. We pride ourselves on keeping the number of relationships relatively small, to facilitate regular collaboration and partnering around education.
