Our Mission

Our mission is to provide quality physical therapy services to underserved and underinsured individuals in both the Bannock County and Ada County areas to enhance the educational experience of Idaho State University physical therapy students through service learning.

  • Services are provided by physical therapy students currently enrolled in the entry-level doctorate of physical therapy program at Idaho State University, while under the guidance of licensed physical therapy practitioners from the local community.
  • Services are facilitated primarily through donated time and resources.
  • Planning of current and future operations of the clinic is provided by the student board established through ASISU. 
  • We share the core values of the Idaho State University Kasiska College of Health Professionals, Idaho State University, and the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).
  • We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, age, religion or religious creed, disability or handicap, sex, gender or sexual preference.

Our Vision

  • Enhance the education of students and community members alike.
  • Address physical therapy needs of the community through evaluation and provision of current evidence-based practice.
  • Promote social awareness among students of key issues in the community.
  • Create community partnerships.
  • Promote the profession of physical therapy through advocacy, professionalism and quality service.
