Broadening Experiences facilitate the synthesis of skills learned in previous courses in the Physical Therapy Program and apply them in a unique physical therapy setting. Each Broadening Experience has been developed to provide an opportunity related to physical therapy, which would not otherwise be experienced in a more typical clinical setting. In these courses students plan, prepare for, and participate in a two-week-long volunteer service/clinical opportunity. Some examples of past and upcoming Broadening Experiences:
