Clinical Experiences

Students in the fourth and sixth years of the Physical Therapy program are required to participate in unpaid fulltime clinical experiences as part of their professional education. It is recommended that students budget an additional $2000-$2500 for travel, accommodations, etc. There are three clinical placement periods during the professional phase of the program as shown below:

  • Year 4-8-week placement generally mid-May to early July
  • Year 6 2 12 week placements Sept-March

The program currently has contracts with over 350 clinical sites throughout the United States.

Students will also spend time in the SOARing Eagles Healthcare (SEH) a student-run pro bono clinic that offers physical and occupational therapy (nursing and pharmacy joining in 2017) services to the uninsured and underinsured in the Bangor community.
