Student Involvement

DPT APTA Students

Graduate Students of Cleveland State University's PT program are involved in a variety of activities which promote their professional development as future physical therapists. Students are expected to participate in service, continuing education, research, and political oriented activities as part of their professional curriculum. They also attend Clinical Labs Off Campus (CLOCS) before beginning their full time Clinical Education experiences. Past CLOCS have included lab sessions at Cleveland Care Alliance, as well as major hospitals, clinics, and rehabilitation facilities in the greater Cleveland area.
