Information for Clinical Instructors and Center Coordinators

We are very fortunate to have clinical instructors like you who share time, expertise, professional values and patients with our students in providing high quality clinical education! Thank you! Quality clinical education is critical to effectively preparing our students to become competent physical therapists. It is also a rewarding and exciting component of the curriculum!

The University of Utah Physical Therapy Program educates students to practice as "generalists" in the field. Clinical education serves to assist the integration of classroom work into clinical practice. The physical therapy students spend 45 weeks in full-time experiences designed to span a variety of practice settings and a wide-ranging patient population. In addition to 4 full-time experiences, students have the opportunity to complete part-time clinical experiences concurrent with didactic coursework. In these experiences, students practice knowledge and skills learned in preparation for full-time placements. Through clinical education, students develop safe, effective skills in all aspects of patient management, interpersonal relations, and professional conduct.
