Incorporating Psychology Services in a Physical Therapy Student-Run Pro Bono Clinic
The student-run pro bono physical therapy clinic is quickly gaining popularity as a model of hands-on student learning. Combining this model with other healthcare disciplines provides not only improved services to clients but also expanded learning opportunities within the realm of interprofessional education. There is little known about the potential benefit of adding psychology services to a pro bono physical therapy clinic setting. The purpose of this brief communication is to describe the integration of graduate clinical psychologist student services from Widener University into a physical therapy student-run pro bono clinic and the benefits resulting from such integration from both a client service and student learning perspective.
