DPT faculty members have been involved in full-time teaching for an average of 24 years and have worked as physical therapy clinicians for over 31 years, on average. Our full-time faculty are active in many facets of the Physical Therapy profession, and all faculty members are engaged in research and/or publishing in peer-reviewed journals.

Presently, all full-time faculty have advanced doctoral degrees (not entry-level DPT), which greatly exceeds the national average for DPT programs.  All full-time faculty who are PT's are proud members of the American Physical Therapy Association.
