Description of Agency:  The Marquette Community Physical Therapy Clinic is a student-operated physical therapy initiative housed within the Marquette Sports Rehabilitation Clinic and overseen by the faculty of Department of Physical Therapy at Marquette University. We provide physical therapy services to the medically uninsured individuals of Milwaukee by incorporating licensed physical therapists and physical therapy students in a collaborative educational model. These collaborations enable FREE physical therapy services to individuals in need while facilitating student development and hands on experience; therefore, each patient will be seen by a treatment team consisting of a maximum of four Doctorate of Physical Therapy Students and a Licensed Physical Therapist.

Student Role at Agency: The Community Dental Clinic South serves a large Spanish-speaking population therefore students can expect to fulfill various interpretation and translation tasks. Students may work in the reception area as intake assistants; obtaining medical histories from patients and helping patients fill out forms. Students may also work with staff during dental/medical procedures as an interpreter. At times when the clinic is not busy, students can make phone calls to patients reminding them of appointments to improve attendance rates. Knowledge of dental vocabulary is a must; a packet with dental terminology will be handed out at site for students to become familiar with. Students are encouraged to be proactive and make themselves known to the dental students and staff. Students are also encouraged to speak Spanish with Spanish-speaking staff.
