Congratulations to Dr. Piccione, Director of Clinical Education, and the Ruskin Doctor of Physical Therapy program on a new clinical affiliation agreement with Colorado Institute of Sports Medicine.

CISM offers a sports-focused clinical experience for DPT students featuring both in-facility and on-the-field training with Olympic, collegiate, high school and semi-professional athletes.

Due to state-level restrictions with worker's compensation coverage, Gannon students have not been able to pursue clinical experiences in the state of Colorado. With this new affiliation, CISM has offered to cover the worker's compensation for Gannon's Ruskin DPT students to come for a truly unique sport PT experience. We are excited for our future students who will benefit from this experience and are grateful to Beth MacDonald and the entire CISM team for this opportunity.
