Upstream as a Clinical Site
We strive to provide our students with the best outpatient, manual therapy, and orthopedic affiliation available. During structured Grand Rounds and Student Tutorials, led by members of our education team, students receive one-on-one time with therapists and CIs. We provide students with an extensive pre-affiliation onboarding packet that contains the company guidelines, the student handbook, and a documentation review. Completion of this onboarding is mandatory prior to the affiliation. This ensures students are adequately prepared for the types of patients they will see in our clinics and become familiar with the rules and laws in the affiliated states.
Have questions? Interested in setting up a clinical affiliation?
Are you interested in gaining experience in a rehabilitation setting and you are enrolled in an undergraduate program, such as Kinesiology, Exercise Science, or Human Development? If your program of study requires an internship that requires more than observation hours in the clinical setting, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance. Internships are fulfilled based on the company’s availability.
Our intent to our volunteers/observers is to give them a better understanding of the day-to-day clinical experience. Each of our clinics directly set up observation experiences. Please contact the clinic of interest directly and they can assist you further. A full listing of our clinics and their contact information can be found on our locations page.
