Completed applications must be submitted by December 31, 2021, for start in the Fall 2022. We will begin accepting applications on October 1, 2021.

Candidates who are preliminarily accepted by the PT Department will interview with one or more of our Residency clinical partners.

Interviewed candidates who are determined to meet employment criteria at one or more partner facilities and are approved by the facility as a qualified resident/employee will be matched to a clinical partner through a collaborative process with the facility and the Program Coordinator.

As employees of a Partner’s facility, each resident must meet the conditions for both initial and ongoing employment for that facility. Potential residents will be informed of all employment standards of the facility prior to accepting the residency position.
