Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy Internship

At CHOP, we offer an exciting pre-professional student internship program in physical therapy. With more than 20 credentialed clinical instructors, our mission is to prepare entry-level practitioners for the field of pediatric physical therapy.

Participants will have finished all of their didactic work prior to being assigned and will be challenged to utilize this knowledge as well as new evidence from the literature to support their practice. Students successfully completing the internship program will be ready to enter the profession with basic competencies in the areas of pediatric evidence-based clinical care, ethical and effective patient care management, professional behavior, patient and family education, communication, documentation and cultural diversity.

For more information, contact your ACCE or Sue Migliore, PT, DPT, MS, PCS, at 215-590-4411.
