Physical Therapy at Plymouth State University

 

The Mission of the Department of Physical Therapy is to provide a vibrant scholarly community for physical therapy in New Hampshire through teaching, research, service and practice contributing to the American Physical Therapy Association's vision of "transforming society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience." The Department's focus is on the education of physical therapists to serve the community in the fields of movement and rehabilitation to provide competent care as autonomous providers, leaders, collaborative team members, and innovators while being respectful, culturally sensitive and socially responsible.

 

Program and Curriculum

 

The DPT curriculum at Plymouth State University is a full-time day program with a sequential three year, three term/year, 117 credit curriculum in which students use knowledge from prior coursework to build further knowledge and expertise as they progress through the program.  The program features hands on clinical practice experiences early and often. Students are involved in practice experiences starting with their first semester and throughout the entire curriculum whether on campus through the Integrated Clinical or off campus through Clinical Education. This is aligned with the Mission and Vision of Plymouth State University, including our motto: Ut Prosim (That I may serve). Integrated clinical experiences will provide the mechanism for collaboration, inter-professional education and service-learning opportunities. In addition to this highly practice-oriented feature, the curriculum includes a theoretical depth and breadth commensurate with the broad vision set by the APTA for the profession.

 

The curriculum includes concept and problem based components throughout. Integrated Clinical is a problem-based course with real on campus clinical problems for the students to work through in small groups with a faculty tutor providing guidance, and the depth and breadth of the student’s ability to solve problems progresses during the program.  The program concepts are threaded with the themes of theory and practice as tightly intertwined and necessary compliments of one another. Theory informs current practice and inspires innovation and transformation. Practice informs theory and tests the ability of theory as a model of reality and as a guide to future theoretical understanding and practice. The curriculum offers a well-balanced mix of foundational and clinical theory course work with clinical practice and experiences. Theory courses are divided into three primary areas: Knowledge Foundations, Systems Theory and Knowledge Development. Practice courses are divided into Practice Courses, Clinical Practice and Practice Reflection. Faculty and students work together to foster an environment, both in and out of the classroom, of learning and scholarship.

 

Scholarship

 

PSU is committed to diversity of scholarship that is informed by the Boyer Model. This model is ideal for the DPT program and faculty due to the highly integrative and practice-oriented scholarship in the profession. The department plans to foster a vision of collaborative scholarship aimed to both develop knowledge and translate knowledge for practice. One way to facilitate this will be the dual purpose of the Integrated Clinical Experience (ICE) course sequence. Each semester faculty will have a group of students rotating through their section of this course. The clinical experiences within this sequence will be based on the faculty's scholarly agenda, and influenced by the needs of campus and community collaborations and partners. The ICE sequence represents an interactive blend of faculty scholarship and teaching, allowing DPT students the opportunity to be part of the integral connection between practice knowledge development and practice, and allowing faculty to work towards a synergy of workload demands while meeting the needs of the students, program and profession.

These positions are available due to faculty retirements and in preparation for growth opportunities in professional entry and post professional physical therapist education. Positions are available beginning August 2017 and rank is commensurate with qualifications.

Successful candidates will be physical therapists who hold academic doctoral degrees and who have or are eligible for licensure in the state of Vermont.

Applicants with scholarly and teaching expertise in neurological, pediatric, cardiopulmonary physical therapy, and/or pathophysiology are strongly encouraged to apply, however, all qualified candidates are welcome to submit applications for consideration.

The University of Vermont is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the institution. Individuals with demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusion are considered desirable. Applicants are strongly encouraged to include information on how they will further this University goal in their cover letter.

Established in 1972, the Doctor of Physical Therapy program is well recognized for its quality, research and innovative teaching and learning opportunities. It 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, Nursing, Communication and Speech Disorders, Health Sciences, Engineering, Nutrition and 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 striving for excellence in research, teaching and learning and interprofessional education while promoting practice collaborations within a stimulating Academic Medical Center environment.

The Department of Rehabilitation and Movement Science integrates three complementary human science faculty groups that focus on promoting optimal health and preventing disease and injury through participation in healthy lifestyles, exercise and physical activity. Faculty have strong interdisciplinary research ties and labs include a state-of-the-art Human Motion Analysis lab to support a wide range of three-dimensional, biomechanical measurement and analyses for static and dynamic human movement research, a physical activity and exercise behavior laboratory, and an adapted physical activity laboratory. Other laboratory space for bench research interests is a potential through other interdisciplinary faculty collaborators.

The University of Vermont combines faculty-student relationships most commonly found in a small liberal arts college with the resources of a major research institution and medical center.
