Clinical Interships

APTA Oncology is interested in developing a list of facilities in all settings (acute care, outpatient and rehabilitation) that would be willing to offer clinical affiliations for students who are interested in oncology.

APTA Oncology will share this list with academic institutions upon request. It will be the responsibility of the academic institution to contact the facility and to develop the clinical affiliation. Placing your facility’s name on the list of potential affiliation sites in no way obligates you to provide a clinical affiliation for a particular academic institution.

This is a great opportunity for APTA Oncology members to help spread the word about oncology rehabilitation and to educate future members. If you are interested in participating, please send the following information to name of facility, contact person, address, phone number, email address, type of facility, and patient population(s).

Thank you in advance for your willingness to share your knowledge and experience. Questions? Please contact our Secretary, Steve Wechsler, at
