UVM College of Nursing and Health Sciences Academic-Clinical Partnership
As of July 2018, Dee Physical Therapy and the University of Vermont College of Nursing and Health Sciences have engaged in a unique partnership. Dee Physical Therapy became The Clinical Faculty Practice in support of the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program.
As the first named outpatient Faculty Clinical Practice supporting the UVM Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) program, Dee PT hosts 40 to 50 clinical learning experiences annually for first, second, and third year UVM DPT students. This allows them to work alongside their professors and our licensed physical therapists. Dee PT provides the UVM DPT faculty with a clinical schedule to practice in our clinics, while our practitioners serve as adjunct clinical faculty at the University DPT program.
In addition, Dee PT has expanded our research support as a practice site for UVM faculty within the DPT program and the Larner College of Medicine. This helps us continue to deliver the most evidence-based care to our patients. Please check out our current research involvement as seen to the right.
We at Dee Physical Therapy feel that this supports our mutual goals of offering best practice quality physical therapy for our patients while supporting education, community service, and scholarship.
