Lauren Wilson, PT, DPT, GCS
Assistant Professor of Physical Therapy
I embrace the constructivist approach to teaching and learning. The concepts of active learning and collaboration are central to my philosophy of education. These are behaviors I seek to model every day in my interactions with students. As a teacher, I most enjoy teaching in the setting of real-world patient care, emphasizing decision-making, self-reflection, and interpersonal relationships in a meaningful context. I believe in collaboration, not competition among the learners.
BiographyI was born and raised in Washington D.C. I graduated from Johnson C. Smith University with a bachelor's degree in biology and chemistry. Then attended Florida International University and obtained a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2010. I have been working as a clinician in the field for 13 years. In 2020, I became an adjunct teaching in a Physical Therapy Assistant program in Bradenton, FL. In 2023, I joined Florida Southern College as an adjunct and later accepted a full-time position. I have 2 kids and during my free time I like to run half marathons, travel internationally, and go to theme parks or the beach with my family.
