Students in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program have steadily increased the dissemination of their unique research that is completed as part of their requirements for graduation. Since 2017, the percentage of graduating DPT students who share their research at national peer-reviewed presentations has increased 42%, with the most recent graduating class (2020) having 77% of the cohort present at national conferences. Many of these students also authored articles in peer-reviewed publications. This reflects the program’s commitment to producing evidence-based, contemporary physical therapists.

“We are extremely proud of our students’ dedication to advancing clinical practice in physical therapy through research, and our faculty efforts in mentorship of the research process,” said Patrick Pabian, director of the DPT program. “Student involvement in research under the mentorship of faculty is a hallmark of our program and an experience that enhances our graduates’ understanding and appreciation for evidence-based practices.”
