Belmont University School of Physical Therapy currently has agreements with over 400 clinical sites from coast to coast and overseas! Our students complete a total of 39 weeks in clinical experiences, which is well above the national average according to the APTA.
Clinical education at Belmont University includes four eight-week full-time affiliations in acute care, rehabilitation or subacute care, and outpatient settings. Each student is expected to complete at least one of these full-time clinical rotations outside of the Middle Tennessee region. However, our location in Nashville, TN, a regional health care hub with many major hospitals and medical centers, allows us to give our students excellent, varied part-time clinical experiences as well.
Gail Bursch, our Director of Clinical Education, works with each student individually to best meet their educational, and in some cases, geographic needs.
