Shands and the Academic Health Center.The primary purpose of a residency in Physical Therapy is to provide you with the optimal opportunity to develop superior clinical practice skills.  Our clinical residency is designed to substantially advance your expertise in examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, intervention, and management of patients in a defined area of clinical practice. In addition, we expect you to gain an in-depth understanding of the science underlying clinical techniques while incorporating an evidence-based practice approach.

The development of exceptional physical therapist professionals who will demonstrate excellence in clinical practice as well as advance the practice of physical therapy forward is our primary goal.  This goal goes beyond guiding you to become a skilled and evidence-based practitioner.  Our intention is to also promote and engender strategic skills denoting professional excellence and effectiveness.  Consequently we have incorporated select learning opportunities in professional leadership, clinical research methods, academic teaching, public speaking and community service.
