Application & Clinical Partner Matching Process
Applicants to the residency program must:
- Be graduates of a CAPTE-accredited physical therapy program.
- Have (or have by program initiation) a valid Massachusetts PT license.
- Hold current CPR certification.
- Have completed a minimum of 10 weeks of clinical experience in an orthopedic setting either as a student or as a licensed PT.
The Clinical Residency in Orthopaedic Physical Therapy program participates in the Residency/Fellowship Physical Therapist Centralized Application Service (RF-PTCAS). The application process begins on October 1, 2023.
Completed applications must be submitted by December 18, 2023, for start in Fall 2024.
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 qualified residents/employees will be matched to a clinical partner through a collaborative process with the facility and the Program Coordinator.
As employees of an MGB 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.
