At FOX Rehabilitation, clinical education is more than a professional responsibility—it’s a passion. We believe that the growing geriatric population relies more and more on our profession; therefore, a solid foundation working with older adults is vital to our students' training and to the growth of our profession. Through clinical experiences with FOX, we hope to inspire new clinicians to treat older adults with excitement and passion to help them live independent and meaningful lives. Additionally, we have supportive full-time opportunities upon graduation with our highly regarded Emerging Professionals Mentor Program.

FOX enjoys relationships with many educational institutions to assist students in translating didactic knowledge into a practical clinical setting with an emphasis on treating the geriatric population in the home environment. Practicing under the direct supervision and guidance of an experienced clinician per the Medicare student guidelines, our Clinical Educators are well trained, dedicated, and enthusiastic—many of whom are board certified and/or have obtained specialty certifications in other areas of interest.
Since 2016, more than 800 students have completed FOX clinical student rotations. Students with FOX can expect a robust curriculum designed to develop core clinical competencies and the clinical judgement necessary to work with older adults in a home-based outpatient setting. FOX Students are provided access to a designated website, rich with tools and materials to make their student experience a successful one.
We have more than 300 PT Clinical Instructors, 250 OT Fieldwork Educators, and 20 SLP Clinical Instructors who are dedicated to providing our students with clinical experiences that will challenge them to think critically, appropriately dose exercise interventions, and work collaboratively with other professionals. Our clinical educators are spread diversely throughout our geographical footprint to offer students experiences in both rural and urban settings.
Students interested in completing a clinical experience with FOX are required to contact their University to coordinate directly with FOX. For more information, please reach out to email@example.com. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to accept students in Physical Therapy Assistant or Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant Programs.
