The mission of the Balance, Movement and Wellness (BMW) Center at MCPHS University is to improve strength, flexibility, endurance, balance and wellness for participants in the greater Worcester area. This pro bono center offers a clinical learning environment and promotes professionalism, clinical competency and service for the Doctor of Physical Therapy students. In addition, faculty have the opportunity to provide unique teaching experiences and contribute to the scholarly advancement of the profession.
The BMW offers a group exercise program focusing on each participant’s individual wellness needs. Seventy-five minute sessions occur twice weekly for 10 weeks in our state of the art facilities. Embedded within our curriculum, DPT students rotate through the BMW Center as part of their Integrated Clinical Experiences (ICE), with advancing performance expectations as they progress through their first two years.
