The Body Shop is a teaching facility where third year Physical Therapy students perform internships under the instruction of our Therapists. We also have a number of undergraduate volunteers who assist in the daily operations of the clinic. If you are interested in completing and internship or a volunteer experience, please contact us to schedule an interview.
