Overview

One method of integration into the WKU DPT Program will be through clinical affiliations of various lengths (6 to 13 weeks).  These will begin during the fall semester of the second year of the DPT curriculum.  You will be given the opportunity to work in and experience the varied scope of practice available to physical therapists.  In keeping with our University and Program missions, you will also have at least 1 clinical rotation in a rural setting.
