DPT Students Gain Experience Before Clinicals

The Department of Physical Therapy and Kinesiology’s free physical therapy clinic delivers high-quality, evidence-based care to UMass Lowell students, faculty and staff. Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) students gain experience working with patients before clinicals under the guidance of two Massachusetts licensed physical therapists. The UMass Lowell community receives free physical therapy services while helping students learn.

Client Testimonial

“I still have a way to go before I am pain-free, but I intend to keep up the exercises and get back into the clinic during spring semester and continue until my shoulder pain is totally gone, or at least improves significantly.”
—Thomas Horgan, mechanical engineering manager for the Submillimeter-Wave Technology Laboratory (STL)

Students Practice Interacting, Admitting and Treating Patients

Faculty in the Department of Physical Therapy and Kinesiology designed the clinical experience for first- and second-year DPT students to practice interacting, admitting and treating patients prior to their formal clinical education assignments. Second- and third-year DPT students gain additional clinical experience while mentoring other students.

Student Testimonials

“It was great to work in groups to see how other students approached treatments.”
—Brittany Turner, second year DPT student
“It’s always a good idea to get exposure to as many different patient cases as possible to be a more well-rounded clinician.”
—Lucas Abreu, second year DPT student
