Once Partners in Physical Therapy receives notice and contact information of student interns, a welcome email will be sent out. We will also request that you let us know if you will need assistance with housing.
One month prior to the start of your internship, a second welcome packet will be sent regarding specific information about the clinical site (hours, schedule, holidays, facility, patient population, etc...).
Students are welcome to call with questions at any time prior to the start of the internship.
We look forward to seeing all of you here and with helping to support your clinical experience!


Helpful Information:

Housing:

Please contact our office if you need assistance with housing.
  • We have staff volunteers that can assist in housing and if we have consecutive students, the clinic can help arrange rental of a furnished apartment for the year (most rentals in Lake Charles have a minimum of 6 months).
  • We will have information available on the website shortly with a list of the apartment complexes that offer 6 month rental, executive housing, and short term housing.
