Glen Rock Physical Therapy has established relationships with multiple college and universities to assist with the education of future physical therapists. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive learning environment where the student has hands-on, practical experience for their career as a physical therapist.
APTA guidelines are used to measure the efficacy of the training, and protocols are in place in order to follow the guidelines of each school for completion of the program.
The purpose of our affiliation program is to support and reinforce the mission of the college or university’s PT program. Our goal is to aide in developing active, dynamic, entry-level physical therapists that will move into a professional career with enthusiasm and commitment to service.
Each institution provides GRPT with a comprehensive course curriculum that serves as the basis for the training for the student. Additionally, we are provided with testing/reporting guidelines; and provide feedback to the student and the Director of Clinical Education from each institution.
Compliance with the GRPT Policies and Procedures is required by each student that interns in our clinic. Students must also demonstrate adequate professional behaviors essential for professional work interaction. The student will participate in all clinical responsibilities under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist. The student will be assessed in the following areas: self-assessment, professional development journal entries, and an in-service presentation. The student should be prepared to participate in supplementary readings or assignments assigned by GRPT to facilitate patient care.
GRPT has contractual agreements with the following institutions:
MERCY COLLEGE, Dobbs Ferry, NY
UNIVERSITY OF RHODE ISLAND, Kingston, RI
