Your fieldwork/affiliation is where you gain the competence and confidence you’ll need to be a successful entry-level practitioner. As a teaching hospital, we’re committed to preparing tomorrow’s therapists for the growing demands of the field.
Discover the many opportunities our program offers for students:
Range of Settings and Specialties
Our rehab programs span the complete spectrum of care, including acute, inpatient rehab and outpatient. Students also experience a variety of cases, such as neurological, orthopedic, cardiac and general debility. While students are placed in a specific area for their affiliation, we offer several opportunities to observe other settings.
Mentoring and Supervision
Working one-on-one with your supervisor, you’ll become familiar with diagnoses, evaluation tools and treatment techniques in your setting. As you gain confidence, you’ll gradually take on a caseload to perform evaluations, treatments and discharge recommendations.
At Sinai, we value an interdisciplinary approach to patient care. Our students take part in care meetings and collaborate with doctors, residents, nurses, social workers and other therapists.
Sinai is committed to evidence-based medicine, and we offer many opportunities for continuing education. Students are invited to attend in-house lectures, observe surgeries and visit other specialty areas.
