The Navajo Nation Offers Ideal Clinical Sites for DPT Students

Navajo Nation Clinical Sites Offer Excellent Opportunities
by Carol Beckel, PT, PhD, Director of Clinical Education

Today I traveled from Albuquerque, NM to Holbrook AZ by way of two visits to facilities in the Navajo Nation.
Northern Navajo Medical Clinic provides both acute and outpatient services in Shiprock, NM.
The Four Corners Medical Clinic in Red Mesa, AZ provides outpatient services.
Students are encouraged to consider these sites by opportunities to work with excellent clinicians as well and providing free-housing for students.
Along the way I visited the Four Corners Monument (possibly the first DCE to be in 4 states at once!). I ended my day by briefly visiting the Painted Desert in the Petrified Forest National Park.

Tomorrow I head to Phoenix for the final 3 site visits!

Carol Beckel, PT, PhD, Director of Clinical Education for the Saint Louis University Program in Physical Therapy is documenting her site visits on the way to the 2016 Education Leadership Conference held in Phoenix, Arizona from October 7-9. This is part 2 of a series of blog posts from Dr. Beckel. Read part 1 here
