Clinical Education


Welcome

Welcome to the Downers Grove Physical Therapy Program Clinical Education Information page. The following resources are provided to assist you in developing and conducting quality clinical education experiences for our DPT students.

If you have any questions feel free to contact Sarah Keller, Co-Director of Clinical Education.

Introduction

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your participation in the clinical education of Midwestern University DPT students. Your commitment to clinical education at all levels (Facility Administrator, CCCE, and CI) is greatly appreciated and enables you to impact the future of our profession. As a result of your expertise, students return to the classroom after Practica I and II with increased clinical knowledge and skills. During Practica III and IV your expertise moves the students toward entry-level performance as they acquire new insight into the realities of the physical therapy profession while achieving additional clinical skills and significant professional growth. We are aware of the time and energy required to supervise a physical therapy student and thank you for sharing your skills, your commitment, and your service to the physical therapy profession.
