We are incredibly fortunate to have a diverse, well-rounded, highly knowledgeable and expertly trained staff here at the Marquette University Physical Therapy Clinic. Our physical therapists are all graduates of Marquette’s Physical Therapy program and have done extensive postgraduate training. Our staff greatly value their roles not only as clinicians, but clinical instructors and educators to the many Marquette physical therapy students who spend time in the clinic. We are privileged to be able to provide one-on-one, evidenced-based, expert care to the Marquette and greater Milwaukee communities.

The benefit of treatment at Marquette University

Being a part of an academic institution and affiliated with one of the top-ranked Doctor of Physical Therapy programs (3rd by StartClass.com and 15th by U.S. News & World Report). Our clinicians and student interns are up-to-date on best practice, evidenced-based care and emerging research in the world of physical therapy. Our therapists also have access to award-winning researchers and educators throughout the College of Health Sciences and Doctor of Physical Therapy program. Because of this, we are able to provide expert care to all of our patients.

Working with students

The Marquette Physical Therapy Clinic is privileged to accept student interns from Marquette’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program. Students complete internships during their second and third years of the three-year doctoral program and their time in the clinic ranges from four to 10 weeks. All student interns treat under direct supervision of a licensed physical therapist. Patients are always notified before treatment begins if they will have an opportunity to work with students. Contributing to a student’s learning is greatly rewarding, however our therapists are very understanding should a patient request to not work with a student.
