  • Lectures and labs are held on the Center City (Health Sciences) Campus in the Three Parkway, Bellet and New College Buildings.
  • The entire campus has wireless capabilities for easy Internet access.
  • PTRS has two state-of-the-art laboratories where the clinical practice components of the professional curriculum are taught.
  • The Department utilizes Drexel’s standardized patient lab as a learning tool to help students practice their clinical decision-making skills. Paid actors are used to simulate various clinical situations while students' interactions with those "patients" are monitored by supervising faculty.
  • The department operates outpatient physical therapy sites in the Drexel Recreation Center on the University City campus, as part of the multidisciplinary Parkway Health and Wellness Center on the Center City campus and a pro-bono practice in the 11th Street Family Health Center. Students rotate through these facilities getting individualized mentoring while connecting classroom content with clinical practice. These experiences are in addition to the 38 weeks of clinical education the student will experience throughout the curriculum.
