The EQUIP Rehabilitation is a student-run, pro bono clinic that operates on Tuesday evenings at Quinnipiac’s North Haven Campus. Our clinic offers interprofessional skilled rehabilitation to individuals in the Greater New Haven area who currently do not have access to physical and/or occupational therapy services due to lack of insurance coverage or for those clients who have exhausted their insurance benefits for a specified condition. Services are also available to those who are covered by the Connecticut Husky Plan. Quinnipiac students provide services to clients in teams led by graduate physical and occupational therapy students under the direct supervision of licensed faculty members. In addition to direct skilled rehabilitation services, we at EQUIP are committed to providing community education through a variety of outreach projects.

The club serves as a liaison between the graduate PT students, university faculty, and other graduate student organizations on campus. This helps to address student concerns and promote unity and involvement throughout Quinnipiac University’s graduate-level programs. The Graduate PT Club sponsors several events and initiatives throughout the course of the year including (but not limited to) speakers/presenters, community service opportunities, and a PT mentorship program. The Graduate PT Club also has a Special Interest Group (SIG) that focuses on spinal cord injuries and issues. The SIG hosts an annual Walk and Roll event with all proceeds benefitting the Connecticut chapter of the National Spinal Cord Injury Association. This organization is open to graduate students in the PT program at Quinnipiac.

The Graduate Student Council consists of students who serve as the governing body for graduate students at Quinnipiac. The organization acts as the medium for graduate students voicing concerns and serving as the official representatives of the graduate student population.

Graduate students who are interested in getting involved or have a concern about graduate life should email graduatestudentcouncil@qu.edu or call 203-582-GRAD.
