Ray VanWye, PT, DPT, Ph.D.

Associate Professor

My goal is to be a role model and mentor. As an educator in an entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy program, my job is to provide constructive feedback while consistently modeling professionalism. However, I like to remind my students that professionalism does not mean perfectionism. Also, I want my students to be accountable by being on time, prepared, and ready to serve. Overall, accountability begins in the classroom and transitions to the clinic. This belief is fostered in my classroom.
