Only a Few Exist, and We Have One!

Did you know there are only approximately 100 pro bono PT Clinics in the country? Of those 100, only 38 are student-run. The PT Clinic in the Leahy Center for the Uninsured and Underinsured is one of those 38!

Partnering with the Community to Make the 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 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.
