Clinical education is the clinical component of the physical therapy curriculum. It provides students with the opportunities to put clinical skills learned in classes into practice within a physical therapy setting under the direct supervision of a licensed physical therapist. The Sage Colleges' physical therapy curriculum consists of two phases of clinical education: four part time Clinical Applications scheduled during the fall and spring semesters of the first two years and three full time clinical education experiences.
Sage College Physical Therapy Department is committed to the pursuit of quality clinical experiences for its students. Quality of experience demands ongoing learning on the part of all stakeholders, including the Director of Clinical Education, the academic faculty, the clinical faculty (clinical instructors and center coordinators of clinical education ), and last but not least the students.
