Facilities and Student Resources

PT Laboratory Facilities

Completed in 2012, the DPT program has a new 1500 square foot laboratory space for instruction and student practice, along with a 400 square foot storage room. With 3 projection screens, a microphone, speakers, and video system, the laboratory space has the technology to help faculty and students interact in a more effective and efficient manner during class times. PT lab equipment includes 26 plinths, overhead power outlets, and equipment appropriate for all PT settings.


Therapeutic exercise equipment includes foam rollers, theraballs, therabands, weights, and some sport-specific equipment. Gait training, acute, neurological and geriatric equipment includes wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, parallel bars, floor mats, wedges, pillows, and other bed linens. Students have the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art equipment provided for lab training in modalities, such as electrical stimulation and ultrasound.


Residents as Instructors

The residents of OSU's Geriatric, Neurology, Orthopedic, Pediatric, and Sports Physical Therapy Residencies all serve as instructors for laboratories and didactic material in their area of expertise. This has rapidly become an extremely valuable part of both the DPT and Residency programs, as both residents and DPT students benefit from the interaction.  

Student-Created Resources

Every year, students create resources to assist each other (and future classes!) in learning both course material and clinical skills. One continually-developing resource is the Orthopedic Lab's Youtube Channel.
