Clinical Education

Physical Therapy Clinical Education

The clinical education component of the Doctor of Physical Therapy program allows students to apply knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to real-life situations in a variety of settings (orthopedics, pediatrics, neurology, geriatrics, etc.), thus experiencing our wonderful profession firsthand, developing working relationships with practicing therapists, and perhaps even discovering what physical therapy specialization they might pursue after graduation.

Students are required to complete clinical experiences in which they manage patients with health care needs at various levels of acuity and in different clinical environments, while interacting with various compositions of health care teams.

To learn more about Physical Therapy clinical education please visit The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) website. You could also reach us directly at 201-941-2240 or you could email our clinical director Dr. Frank J. Scerbo at fscerbo@scerbopt.com.

Student Testimonial

Scerbo Physical therapy has given me all the tools needed to grow as a prospective physical therapist. I was always encouraged to learn new skills, and improve on any skills that I have previously acquired.  As a student I could not have asked for a better learning environment. Dr. Scerbo, Dr. Pomykala, and Dr, Lombardo were all extremely helpful and always welcomed any questions, or suggestions.  I am extremely grateful for being placed in such a great clinic with a wonderful staff.” —Beshowy Wanis SPT Summer 2017 Intern

  • Approaching my second hip replacement, I am not dreading my rehab. If this seems like an over-the-top endorsement, it is. Because it's all true. Patients leave Scerbo Physical Therapy with a big smile. Oh, and less pain.

  • Overall, this is a PT place I recommended to friends and family members if they needed physical therapy and none have been disappointed with their treatment. To me this is exceptional care combined with truly empathetic and wonderful people.

    Nancy Flogaites Patient
  • They made me feel like a friend, not a patient. They were gentle and understanding when the therapy was painful. I have the highest regard and deepest respect for Dr. Frank Scerbo and his team. They did for me what no medication could accomplish. Their professionalism and caring were the perfect prescription to ease the pain and speed my total recovery. I'm forever grateful.
