Marymount partners with the community to provide services to the disadvantaged in the local area.
Through a Nurse-Managed Health Center in partnership with St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church, Marymount provides health promotion services including disease prevention, wellness, and education to all those served. The Center also serves as a faculty practice and student learning site.
Marymount’s Department of Physical Therapy operates a Physical Therapy Clinic at the Arlington Free Clinic. The Arlington Free Clinic is a nonprofit, community-based organization of volunteers committed to providing access to quality health care to low income, uninsured residents of Arlington, Virginia.
The Physical Therapy Clinic employs innovative education and health care delivery strategies to meet two important community needs: access to needed physical therapy services for Arlington County residents who do not have health insurance and serves as a clinical education site for Marymount University Physical Therapy graduate students.
Physical therapy services are coordinated by Marymount University Physical Therapy faculty, and are provided by faculty, community volunteers, and students.
Students enrolled in the graduate Physical Therapy program at Marymount University have a variety of opportunities to participate in PT Clinic activities throughout the curriculum.
