Clinical Education

Introduction

Our clinical education program consists of two Integrated Clinical Experiences (ICE) and three Full Time Clinical Internships.

Integrated Clinical Experiences consist of one full day a week in the clinic for eight weeks and occur during the Fall and Spring of the second year. Students are simultaneously involved in the Neuromuscular and Musculoskeletal blocks of the didactic curriculum during these experiences.

The Full Time Clinical Internships occur during the third year and are each eleven weeks in length, for a total of 33 weeks of clinical experience. Students will complete an internship in each of the following settings: medically complex, elective rehabilitation specialty, and community based.  At the start of the full-time clinical internship experience, students will have already completed the didactic curriculum and passed a cumulative clinical qualifying exam.

This webpage will host updated news related to clinical education and forms related to each of the clinical experiences.

We welcome feedback from our clinical partners. Please feel free to contact the clinical education office at any time at ptrsclined@som.umaryland.edu.
