Becoming a Clinical Site

The School of Physical Therapy at Marshall University is continually searching for superb new clinical practice sites for our students. If you or your clinical facility is interested in partnering with us for clinical education, please contact us at arnott2@marshall.edu, lane36@marshall.edu.
