Saint Louis University’s Health Resource Center has been providing free primary health care services in an academic environment since 1994. Today, it offers eight different clinic sessions, including physical therapy.
Through this clinic, SLU physical therapy students further develop skills learned
in class. It also allows collaborative interprofessional communication between physicians
and physical therapists, and gives back to the St. Louis community by providing physical
therapy treatments free of charge.
Physical therapy students in the second and third year of their professional phase of education treat patients under the supervision of at least one licensed faculty member. Students are able to evaluate and treat any patient who has been referred to physical therapy by a physician, either from an outside provider or within the Health Resource Center.
The service is available every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon. Patients are seen every 30 minutes. A total of 16 appointments are available. Patients must have a valid prescription from a doctor and appointment to be seen.
