PT Residency Programs

Physical Therapy Residency Programs

Resident experiences include clinical practice, clinical mentoring, teaching in the specialty area and opportunities for research and scholarly activity. The residency program is one year in length. Each program contracts with different community partners to provide the clinical work site and clinical mentorship.

Residents participate in a Common Core Curriculum, which includes topics that are relevant for all PT residents and OT fellows within an academic curriculum in their specialty area. Interprofessional opportunities are incorporated in the academic curriculum and clinical practice.
