The DPT faculty model academic, clinical and research expertise, in addition to innovative teaching and learning opportunities (www.uvm.edu/cnhs/rms/physical_therapy). The small class size of 40 students allows for a variety of teaching approaches between clinical and tenure-track faculty, as well as time for scholarly activity. The DPT program is an integral component of the Department of Rehabilitation and Movement Science in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences within the University. Uniquely positioned on the UVM main campus, along with our academic colleagues in Medicine, Health Sciences, Engineering, Nutrition, Psychology and our clinical colleagues in the Medical Center, the College provides an exciting academic environment with excellent collaborative relationship potentials for new faculty. The College priorities focus on promoting excellence in research, teaching and learning, interprofessional education, and practice collaborations within a stimulating Academic Health Sciences Center environment.
The Department of Rehabilitation and Movement Science is comprised of four related areas of study including physical therapy, exercise science, emergency medicine services, and integrative health. A new Master’s degree in Physical Activity and Wellness, plans for a Doctorate in Occupational Therapy, and an interprofessional Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Health Sciences also contribute to a growing Department. Departmental facilities include the recently renovated Human Motion Analysis lab which houses multiple force plates, EMG, and three-dimensional biomechanical equipment for static and dynamic human movement research; a physical activity and exercise behavior lab; and a neurophysiology lab that utilizes TMS and EEG. Other laboratory space for bench research interests is a potential through our interdisciplinary faculty collaborators.
