The Dewane Neurorehabilitative Pro Bono Clinic is a student-coordinated clinic organized by Doctor of Physical Therapy Program students with faculty advisement. The clinic serves underserved or uninsured patients who require physical, occupational and speech therapy interventions in neurological rehabilitation.
Speech-language, physical therapy and occupational therapy graduate students work together to develop plans and co-treat patients at the clinic, providing an opportunity for students to learn and experience how co-treatment and consultative services take shape across various disciplines.
In the spirit of the Wisconsin Idea, students not only gain essential skills by directly applying the concepts they learn in the classroom but also learn valuable lessons from the patients who work in tandem with the clinic’s staff to improve their own health and teach the students how to become better practitioners in their fields.
A feature video produced by the Morgridge Center for Public Service highlights the work of the Pro Bono Clinic and its impacts on the students, faculty and clients who have worked with the clinic over the years.
