At CHOP, we offer an exciting clinical education for current physical therapy students. With more than 50 credentialed clinical instructors, our mission is to prepare entry-level practitioners for the field of pediatric physical therapy.
Students who will have completed all of their didactic coursework can apply to do their final clinical education internship at CHOP. We will challenge students to utilize their didactic knowledge as well as new evidence from the literature to support their emerging clinical practice. Students successfully completing clinical education at CHOP will be ready to enter the Physical therapy 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.
