Students along with alumni and faculty practice both their new professional skills and their Christian faith as a part of a mission team
International evangelical medical mission trip participation is one of the unique opportunities available through the physical therapy program at SBU. The mission trips usually take place during the second or third year of the program. Students along with alumni and faculty practice both their new professional skills and their Christian faith as a part of a mission team meeting the physical and spiritual needs of people less fortunate than themselves. Students raise funds to cover travel and participation expenses for the mission. SBU PT students serve around the world in resource-poor communities in places such as India, Venezuela, El Salvador, Brazil, Haiti, and Peru (see video on sidebar).
Our Healing Mission: The physical therapy department at SBU is dedicated to providing society with physical therapists who engage in the art and science of physical therapy with a Christian worldview. The graduate will be a clinician generalist who is prepared to provide physical therapy services for a diverse population in an evolving society and health care environment.
