Rehabilitation Clinical Education Program
Cone Health has multiple locations offering offering acute, inpatient rehab and outpatient experiences. Students who demonstrate the ability to perform within expectations as determined by the academic program, the student and the clinical instructor also can expect to participate in a rich and varied number of ancillary experiences while affiliating with our health system.
Our clinical education philosophy embraces the importance of developing intellectually curious and clinically competent professionals whose practice is informed by an appreciation of the individual-team impact on patient outcomes. We strive to offer a challenging and rewarding foundational experience upon which student-practitioners will build a lifetime of successful practice.
The Rehabilitation Department provides clinical education to students of:
- Physical Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Speech/Language Pathology
- Therapeutic Recreation
Prospective applicants must be enrolled in colleges and universities that have established contractual agreements with our rehabilitation department. Affiliation assignments are made through the academic coordinator of clinical education (ACCE) at each student's college or university in conjunction with the center coordinator of clinical education (CCCE), not by Cone Health.
Students assigned to clinical affiliations should carefully review and submit necessary information at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the affiliations.
