Congratulations to the TSU Tiger Community Rehabilitation Clinic on winning the 2020 TNOTA Philanthropy Vote!

 

The Tennessee State University (TSU) Tiger Community Rehab Clinic aims to provide PT and OT services for the uninsured and underinsured and conducts programs to promote community health and wellness. This clinic affords TSU students an opportunity to develop an understanding of social responsibility and to appreciate the contribution they might make to society in their future therapy practice.  

This clinic provides traditional therapy services at no cost by physical and occupational therapy students under the direct supervision of licensed clinical therapists. Beginning this August, we will be reopening Middle Tennessee's first student-run pro-bono community rehabilitation clinic (TSU's Tiger Community Rehabilitation Clinic) for its second year! The clinic will operate every Friday during the Fall and Spring semesters from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.   

If possible, we would love to have you join us in giving back to the community as one of our supervising therapists. 

The Supervising Therapists responsibilities would include:   

1. Client care and clinical decisions 
2. Supervising OT students 
3. Coordination of care with referral sources 
4. Communication with Faculty Board 
5. Communication with Student Board Clinic Administrators 

 

Benefits of serving as a supervisory therapist include: 

1. Attendance at any TSU PT/OT sponsored continuing education courses at no cost 
2. Mentorship opportunities with TSU PT/OT faculty 
3. Continuing education credit for clinical instructor responsibilities, consistent with Tennessee practice act stipulations.
