An integral part of the George Fox Doctor of Physical Therapy educational experience is community engagement. In partial fulfillment of our mission to meet the health and wellness needs of our community through generous service, we offer a free community clinic in our Villa Academic Complex facility.
Community members with orthopedic injuries and neurological injuries – as well as individuals with “normal” function – are invited to serve as testing subjects for students. All community clinic sessions are under the direct supervision of a physical therapist.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Gina Braden at 503-554-2450.
Our purpose is to provide physical therapy services to those who cannot otherwise afford physical therapy. In a spirit of community, it is not our intention to be in competition with other community physical therapy providers.
Our intention is to provide physical therapy services to those in the community that:
- Do not have access to physical therapy due to lack of insurance coverage
- Have insurance coverage and their physical therapy benefits have expired
- Have no other financial means to obtain physical therapy services
Included are those community members who may have exhausted their insurance benefits.
The mission of the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program is to prepare physical therapists to meet the health and wellness needs of their community through innovative practice, passionate commitment, the pursuit of excellence, and generous service.
The George Fox DPT program is housed in the Villa Academic Complex, 501 N. Villa Road, Newberg, Ore., 97132. The physical therapy entrance is on the side of the building along Sherman Street.
