MSJ Student Run Pro Bono PT Clinic

We provide FREE physical therapy services to underserved and underinsured members of the westside regional community.

Students are in Charge

  • A volunteer board of first and second-year DPT students, with alumni and faculty guidance, oversees all aspects of clinic operation providing a unique preparation in physical therapy administration and management

ALL Students Participate

  • ALL students in the DPT program will participate in the clinic, simulating a real-world experience prior to their terminal clinical education experiences in year 3.
  • First year students volunteer to assist with the running of the clinic
  • Pairs to groups of 3 students work together to examine, evaluate and treat a patient under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist from the community in a collaborative learning environment
  • Students are supervised by licensed physical therapists from our community in a collaborative learning environment.

Providing Meaningful Care to Those Who Need It

  • Patients are referred from multiple sources or are self-referred. Our primary goal is to serve community members whose insurance benefits lack sufficient coverage or those without the financial resources to cover co-payments.
  • Students determine the frequency and duration of treatment and are learning to provide treatment in a timely manner.

Integrated into the Curriculum

  • The clinic runs year-round (each semester, fall, spring and summer) so that students can integrate new knowledge and clinical skills as they learn which provides a rich, integrated experience
  • Students practice documentation and billing (services are free – billing is simulated) using an electronic documentation system.
