Clinical Program

About the BTG Clinical Program 



The BTG Clinical Program is an interdisciplinary experience providing students with the opportunity to become more skilled in collaborative community clinical service for underserved populations. As with BTG CHIP, the Clinical Program provides meaningful service to a partnering clinical/community site by allowing the site to access additional human resources (health/social service professions students). Students from multiple health and social service disciplines from across the city may elect to rotate through one of three program experiences.

Clinical Program Sites

Covenant House serves homeless youth, runaways and youth in crisis, and provides students with an opportunity to engage the youth in the cultivation of constructive responses to stress and attain skills that build positive approaches to life's challenges.

InnovAge Pennsylvania LIFE, a PACE Program (Program of All-Inclusive Care of the Elderly), serves dual eligible, frail community-dwelling older adults.

Philadelphia FIGHT provides primary care to address the physical and emotional health needs of Philadelphia’s children from birth through age 18, regardless of ability to pay.

Prevention Point is a multiservice public health organization where students will experience a nonjudgmental approach to the provision of health care and social services for the hardest-to-reach and often addicted populations.


Space is limited. Interested students are advised to start the application process as early as possible in their professional training.

Students can contact their academic institution’s BTG Clinical Program Coordinator or e-mail Bridget McCormick ( 215-573-3208, BTG Clinical Liaison, for more information about the Clinical Program and availability and eligibility requirements for the clinical sites.
