Clinical Education

Introduction

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

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. In addition to clinic visits, students participate in various professional integration opportunities and community service as a part of the ICEs.

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

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

Current Clinical Instructors can find information about upcoming students by accessing their profiles through CORE ELMS, our online management software. A library of CI resources, a job board, example forms, and feedback surveys are also available within this software.
