Student Clinical Affiliations


Pursue a women’s health or pelvic health clinical affiliation. Affiliating with a physical therapy professional in our specialty field will expose you to a wide variety of conditions. Your Clinical Instructor will guide you through a program that may include evaluation and treatment of patients in your assigned clinic as well as the opportunity to observe. You will be able to use what you’ve learned in school while also continuing to expand your skills. 

Clinical Instructors

Becoming a Clinical Instructor for a Women’s Health affiliation for student physical therapists is a valuable way to contribute and “give back” to your profession! The Academy wants to support you in the role of clinically educating our future practitioners! We are working on pulling together resources for you. Would you like to suggest a resource idea? Send us an email at
