Director Search The Program in Physical Therapy at the U

            

Director Search

The Program in Physical Therapy at the University of Minnesota is inviting applications from talented and experienced academicians to serve as the 6th Program Director in the rich 75-year history of the Program.

Position Description

The position is a 12-month tenured appointment at the academic rank of Associate or Full Professor, depending on credentials.  Responsibilities include:

Serving as the primary leader of the Program

Hiring, evaluating and developing faculty

Fiscal management

Maintaining accreditation

Grantsmanship

Scholarly productivity

Teaching in Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Program in Rehabilitation Science

Visionary leadership to promote ongoing advancement of the Program and the discipline of physical therapy locally, nationally and internationally

 

A talented Associate Director assists the Program Director considerably.  This position requires an academic doctorate and clinical degree in Physical Therapy with licensure eligibility in Minnesota. An ideal candidate will have a passion for excellence in physical therapy professional, residency, and academic doctoral education, as well as enthusiasm for faculty governance.

University of Minnesota PT Program

The Program in Physical Therapy is located within the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation within the Medical School.  The Program enjoys respectable visibility within the University and the Medical School through collaborative research, combined course work taught to physical therapy and medical students, and shared committee involvement. Fifty-two DPT students are admitted each year.  The DPT academic and clinical curriculum spans three years and includes 141 semester credits.  The budgeting model for the Program gives autonomy to the Program in directing itself by virtue of the Program controlling its primary revenue source, student tuition.  Besides receiving much federal research funding, the Program also receives targeted research dollars from the State of Minnesota.  A recently implemented landmark partnership with the University called the “Minnesota’s Discovery, Research, and InnoVation Economy” (MnDRIVE) has served to advance Program faculty research in brain neuromodulation and robotics.  Physical Therapy faculty also benefit from another major research initiative that partners the University with the Mayo Clinic, located 75 miles away, in a project focused on bi-planar fluoroscopic motion analysis for measuring underlying bone motion.

The Program in Physical Therapy upholds a strong national reputation with regard to quality of graduates, NIH funding, scholarly productivity, global health, and humanistic outreach service. Besides the aforementioned DPT and PhD Programs, the Program also has a DPT/PhD Program and an accredited Geriatric Residency. There are 19 faculty lines. The next on-site review of the Program for accreditation by CAPTE will occur in 2020. The University of Minnesota is a major public research institution and Physical Therapy faculty have a rich history of interdisciplinary research with colleagues in Integrative Biology and Physiology, Neurology, Orthopedics, Radiology, Cancer Center, Center on Aging, Muscular Dystrophy Center, Center for Magnetic Resonance Research, Clinical Translational Science Institute, and the Institute for Engineering in Medicine. 

University of Minnesota and Community

The University of Minnesota was established in 1851 and serves as Minnesota’s land grant university.  It includes five campuses across the state with the Medical School being located on the main campus in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul (metro population=3.5 million).  The Twin Cities boasts a major cultural center with renowned museums, theatrical venues, orchestras, dance companies and literature settings. There are major sports teams for both men and women. Minnesota ranks as the 2nd most bike friendly state and the 4th healthiest state in the nation. Minnesota is the “Land of 10,000 Lakes”, which offers enormous and varied recreational outdoor activities for all throughout the year.

Application Process

Applications will be reviewed upon receipt and the search will remain open until the position is filled. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a cover letter of intent outlining prior academic administration, leadership, research, and teaching experiences, and the names and contact information including email for three references. Applications must be submitted online following the link:

GSU is the largest urban university in the state and is located in the heart of Atlanta within blocks of some of the finest healthcare facilities in the nation. The Department of Physical Therapy is a leader in research and education in the allied health professions. The Department’s mission is “to prepare doctors of physical therapy who are committed to clinical excellence, professional distinction, and the pursuit of scholarly activities that contribute to the body of scientific and clinical knowledge.” Rising into the upper echelon of U.S. physical therapy educational programs, this 46 year-old, fully CAPTE accredited program seeks a proven scholar and academic leader with active research involvement, who can manage the existing educational, research, service, and clinical programs. The Chair will foster innovation and collaboration within a faculty comprised of nationally recognized teachers and clinicians, many of whom are deeply involved in clinical research on topics ranging from the basic, such as the functional relationship between bone and muscle, to the futuristic, like the use of virtual reality in enhancing rehabilitation.

GSU is the first public institution in Georgia to confer the Doctor of Physical Therapy degree, and per year it enrolls three cohorts, each with 40 students, with diverse backgrounds, majors and interests. The Department provides an environment that supports and fosters the development of a focused, productive, and high-quality research program for its ten full-time and part-time faculty members, and deeply involves students in the discovery process.  Students are provided exceptional learning opportunities, whether on campus or at one of more than 200 affiliated clinical sites within the metro Atlanta area and across the country. Emeritus faculty, clinical adjunct faculty, and part-time instructors also enrich clinical and academic instruction. Student researchers have the opportunity to present their findings at local, state, and national meetings, contributing to the body of knowledge as well as enhancing their own understanding and scholarship.  The effectiveness of this immersive approach is reflected in a 100% graduation rate and, more importantly, successful licensure of graduates over the last three years of 97% to 100%. Faculty of the Physical Therapy Department collaborate with renowned experts in the Atlanta metro area and throughout the nation conducting research on projects that have been funded by the Department of Defense, the National Institutes of Health, the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research, Paralyzed Veterans of America, and the American Association of Retired Persons.  The Department’s grant-supported research programs include collaboration with the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Education, Business, and the Neuroscience Institute at GSU, in addition to Emory University, Georgia Tech, and Grady Hospital.

The successful candidate will be a visionary who can lead and enhance the education, research, and service mission through effective communication and collaboration.  A history of progressively responsible positions in academic leadership and management is most desirable, including experience in departmental budgeting and resource allocation, as well as in hiring, developing, and supervising faculty. A student-centric approach to education, a thirst for continued personal academic achievement, and a willingness to collaborate with fundraising efforts are required.  Qualifications include a PhD or equivalent, physical therapy licensure or eligibility to be licensed in Georgia, and experience in teaching, research, and practice.  Qualified candidates may be considered for tenure at the Associate Professor or Full Professor rank.
