Connecting Physical Therapy Education with the Community

Our Physical Therapy students have the irreplaceable advantage of gaining hands-on, real experience right on our campus. By partnering with the community, Scranton makes a strong connection between the classroom and the clinic.

Mission Statement:

The mission of the University of Scranton’s Leahy Community Health and Family Center Physical Therapy (LCHFC PT) Clinic, as a part of the University’s first student run free clinic, is to deliver exceptional patient centered care by providing physical therapy services to uninsured and underinsured residents of the University Area Community, educate future physical therapists through clinical learning experiences grounded in the Jesuit tradition, and to foster the partnership between The University, its students, faculty and staff, and the community through collaboration and evidence based practice of physical therapy.  

What We Do:

The University of Scranton’s Leahy Community Health and Family Center Physical Therapy (LCHFC PT) Clinic strives to provide quality physical therapy screening, examinations/evaluations and interventions to the uninsured and underinsured members of the community at no cost.

The management of the clinic is run by a team of students from the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program and treatment of patients is conducted by DPT students with supervision by DPT program faculty and licensed physical therapy clinicians from the community.  This provides our students with an valuable hands-on learning experience that enriches both their lives and and the lives of their clients.
