Clinical Training Sites
Clinical training sites throughout Southern Oregon and in other rural communities have been identified, serving the essential critical function for preparing practitioners for the exciting generalist roles required in serving rural health communities. In addition, we seek to provide an important linkage between students on rotations, clinical and core faculty given the joint program with Oregon Tech and OHSU. Oregon’s academic medical center, OHSU, provides experiences across a range of clinical settings including high complexity acute care and ICU, pediatrics, and outpatient rehab across a range of specialty areas.
Physical therapists may work in:
Graduation from a physical therapist education program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), 3030 Potomac Ave., Suite 100 Alexandria, VA 22305-3085; Phone: 703-706-3242; firstname.lastname@example.org is necessary for eligibility to sit for the licensure examination, which is required in all states. Oregon Institute of Technology is seeking accreditation of a new physical therapist education program from CAPTE. The program is planning to submit an Application for Candidacy, which is the formal application required in the pre-accreditation stage, on June 1st, 2022. Submission of this document does not assure that the program will be granted Candidate for Accreditation status. Achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status is required prior to implementation of the professional phase of the program; therefore, no students may be enrolled in professional courses until Candidate for Accreditation status has been achieved. Further, though achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status signifies satisfactory progress toward accreditation, it does not assure that the program will be granted accreditation.
