ProRehab Curriculum

During this program, the physical therapist will work in-clinic 40 hours per week and have time spent in direct mentorship with sports patients. The remainder of the week will be spent on-field with “hands-on” sports physical therapy mentorship provided by ProRehab’s certified athletic trainers and physical therapists. The Resident will have the opportunity to work with a local high school as well as with collegiate and professional athletes. The Resident will observe surgery and participate in clinic patient care with the orthopaedic surgeon.
