The Performing Arts Fellowship at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is a 12-month program that combines clinical mentoring, didactic coursework, research, and independent practice in order to develop expert performing arts clinicians. We partner with local professional performing arts companies and schools to provide a wide variety of performing arts experiences to our fellow, including dance, music, figure skating, and gymnastics. These combined experiences allow our fellows to develop their own expert practice in the clinic, onsite, and backstage. The Performing Arts Fellowship at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center achieved accreditation by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE) in 2018.
