Student Opportunities

At Vital Energy, we recognize the value of sponsoring students for on-site clinical rotations and practicum experiences. We serve as a premier teaching facility and offer an exceptional learning experience to all of our students.


Students get the opportunity to work very closely with our well-trained staff to observe and practice traditional occupational therapy, physical therapy, aquatic therapy, pediatric therapy, wellness services, and much more!


While we love to support the education community, spaces are limited and may include fees. In order to ensure patient care as our priority, we generally allow only one student per department on-site at a time.

Students actively enrolled in one of our partnering programs below should contact their adviser to discuss the possibility of choosing Vital Energy as your site. If you are not a student in one of the programs listed below, please complete the request form at the bottom of the page. Requests will be accommodated on a first come, first serve basis if availability allows.
If you are an academic adviser or professional and would like to discuss becoming one of our partnering programs, please contact our office manager, Tammy Corbetta, by phone at 803-265-4077, by e-mail at or by fax at 803-339-0744.
