Thanks to generous support from maurices, a retail clothing chain based in Duluth, MN, the student-run educational clinic offers physical and occupational therapy services to people with little to no insurance, and to the St. Scholastica community. Care is supervised by program faculty.

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

The clinic includes an Adult Gym, a Pediatric Gym, and an Activities for Daily Living (ADL) Suite where students learn assessment and intervention techniques for patients who require training, adaptive equipment, or assistive technology to promote independence in daily living skills, such as cooking, cleaning, dressing and hygiene.
