About the BTG Clinical Program 

Overview


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.

Mercy LIFE (Living Independently for Elders), West Philadelphia a PACE program (Program of All-Inclusive Care of the Elderly) serving dual-eligible, frail community-dwelling older adults.
