Hands-on learning for a healthier community

The student-run maurices Community Clinic offers physical and occupational therapy services to people with little or no insurance, and to the St. Scholastica Community. The clinic is located at our new Health Science Center at BlueStone and was made possible through a generous gift from maurices. Care is supervised by program faculty.

The clinic offers invaluable interprofessional educational experiences. Students from St. Scholastica's Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Physician Assistant programs, UMD's Pharmacy program and the Lake Superior College Physical Therapy Assistant program collaborate to provide a variety of services to patients.
