All physical therapy programs are encouraged to send annual clinical calendar requests to sites beginning March 1 of each year. Once the responses are received, the UTC assignments are generally completed in early October.
Students will provide the clinical site, center coordinator of clinical education, and the clinical instructor with feedback using the APTA Physical Therapist Student Evaluation: Clinical Experience and Clinical Instruction Form.
On-site supervision is to be provided by a physical therapist licensed in the applicable state, with a minimum of one year of experience, post-licensure. Please refer to the applicable state practice act, insurance agreements, and the APTA website for additional clarifications and/or requirements relative to student supervision and reimbursement rules.
