US Army - Baylor University DPT Clinical Internship

Site Coordinator of Clinical Education

The clinical internship seeks to produce active duty physical therapists for the United States Uniformed Services – Army, Navy, Air Force, and Public Health – with the knowledge and expertise to examine and treat patients with neuromusculoskeletal problems. The program provides students with the knowledge, skills, problem–solving ability, duties, responsibilities, and ethics to deliver quality physical therapy patient care and provides those concepts, principles, methods and role models, which will stimulate the continuous personal and professional growth of these physical therapy officers. Students are commissioned in the Army Medical Specialist Corps, the Navy Medical Service Corps, the Air Force Biomedical Science Corps, or the Public Health Service.
