DPT Clinical
Education Overview

Three full-time clinical education externships occur at the conclusion of the didactic curriculum. Each externship is 10 weeks in length. Students are required to complete externships in the following areas: multisystem complexity, inpatient rehabilitation, and elective (practice setting or population of choice). UD maintains contracts with over 270 facilities around the country to provide these full-time clinical experiences. Three semester-long integrated clinical experiences (ICEs) occur throughout the first two years in the program. Students are required to complete ICEs in the following areas: sports and orthopedics, neurologic and older adult, and pediatrics.

Special clinical education opportunities for our DPT students are offered in the UD PT clinics.
