Director of Clinical Education
Assistant Professor

Clinical education makes up a third of the students' entire curriculum. Forming relationships between faculty, students, and clinical faculty is key to students fully learning the art and science of physical therapy. Through continuous communication and active engagement with clinical sites, we have a rich and diverse program to help physical therapy students grow into professional clinicians.
