Professional Development in Dance Medicine for Students & Healthcare Practitioners
NYU Langone’s Harkness Center for Dance Injuries offers professional development in dance medicine through our student internships and academic observation and postgraduate performing arts physical therapy fellowship for certified healthcare professionals. Our goal is to provide healthcare practitioners with the most recent evidenced-based knowledge and skills necessary to prevent, evaluate, and treat injuries in dancers.
Our clinicians also incorporate relevant and timely information about careers in dance medicine into workshops and lectures.
Please note that written expression of interest in our educational programs does not guarantee placement. Eligibility for acceptance to our programs depends on factors such as the review of your application or CV by a committee, a telephone or in-person interview, rigorous review of your professional and personal references, and compatibility with our program mission and schedule. All volunteer positions, internships, and educational affiliate programs are nonpaying positions; the orthopedic physical therapy fellowship comes with a stipend and benefits.
