Clinical Education

A significant part of the program consists of 37 weeks of full-time clinical training. Integrated throughout all three years of the didactic component is hands-on clinical training in a variety of settings, including private practice, hospital acute care, orthopedics, pediatric and rehabilitation facilities.

Students should be prepared to participate in some clinical internships outside of the Portland metropolitan area during the clinical education portion of the program. During these out-of-area internships (as well as other internships), students are responsible for living and transportation expenses.
