Every day, our hospitals lead the way to better care through enhanced technology and by decisions driven through meaningful data. At Encompass Health hospitals, we offer opportunities for students to learn from our integrated care team of experts. Undergraduate and graduate students can experience firsthand how customized treatment plans are put into action and the superior outcomes that result from our leading approach to rehabilitative care. Clinical rotations are offered in physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, nursing and pharmacy at participating Encompass Health hospitals.

Taking the next step

To start the process, ask your field experience coordinator or department chair if a clinical affiliation agreement is in place between your institution and an Encompass Health hospital. If an agreement already exists, we encourage you to contact the local human resources department. If there is not a formal agreement, encourage your institution to work with an Encompass Health hospital in your area to establish a clinical affiliation agreement. We hope to hear from you soon!

Establishing a clinical affiliation agreement

If you are a field experience coordinator or department chair at your institution and you are interested in learning more about our clinical affiliation program, let’s talk. Our clinical affiliation coordinator can share a copy of our standard affiliation template and discuss the process and benefits of a formal partnership.

Our agreements typically include the areas of nursing, therapy, pharmacy, dietetics and health information, but can be customized for your institution. While we cannot guarantee a rotation placement for all students, we hope you will reach out to learn more about what Encompass Health hospitals can offer your institution and students.

To learn more, you can reach out to our Clinical Affiliation Coordinator Angela Shook at

I did my clinical work here as an occupational therapy student on the stroke team and got hired to be on the spinal cord injury team. I decided to come back as a full-time employee, traveling from Massachusetts, because I knew I could challenge myself and develop competent clinical skills with the support from my team members.
