The Department of Rehabilitation and Movement Science, Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at the University of Vermont (UVM) invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin August 2019.

Successful candidates will be physical therapists who hold academic doctoral degrees and who have or are eligible for licensure in the state of Vermont. Candidates are expected to have an interest in collaborative teamwork, be active in research and/or have potential to develop an independent scholarship agenda while being committed to teaching, advising, and professional development of our students. Although not required, completion of a postdoctoral research fellowship is strongly recommended. Applicants with scholarly and teaching expertise in pediatrics, medical/surgical/cardiopulmonary management, leadership, pain science and rehabilitation technologies are encouraged to apply; however, all qualified candidates are welcome to submit applications for consideration. Teaching responsibilities will be dependent on content expertise.

Established in 1972, the DPT program is well recognized for its quality, research and 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 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 promoting excellence in research, teaching and learning, interprofessional education, and practice collaborations within a stimulating Academic Medical Center environment.

The Department of Rehabilitation and Movement Science integrates three complementary applied human science programs with strong interdisciplinary research ties – physical therapy, exercise science, and athletic training. 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.

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. The University is home to 10,612 undergraduates, 1,552 graduate students, 466 medical students and 1,685 full- and part-time faculty. Located in Burlington, Vermont (perennially voted one of America’s most exciting small cities), UVM’s setting in a valley on the shores of Lake Champlain, between the Adirondack and the Green Mountain ranges, inspires visitors and residents alike.

Review of applications will begin November 2018 and continue until filled. The University of Vermont is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.

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."

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.

Under the University’s strategic plan, Roadmap to Premier, health sciences has been identified as one of five areas of focus stimulating transdisciplinary research (visit https://www.binghamton.edu/transdisciplinary-areas-of-excellence/) and offers fertile opportunities for faculty to collaborate with highly productive faculty colleagues across an array of disciplines and to engage in the development of a PhD program in health sciences.

The campus is nestled in the rolling hills of the Southern Tier in upstate New York on 930 acres. In 2020, the Decker School of Nursing will expand into a new College of Nursing and Health Sciences and will join the University's School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences on an 8-acre Health Sciences Campus in Johnson City, NY. The new College will reside in a 90,000-square-foot former Endicott Johnson Corp. shoe and carton factory currently undergoing a complete renovation to include a new Regional Simulation Center, modern health science classrooms and learning laboratories, and Information Commons. The new therapy programs will have about 15,000-square-feet of space in the renovated building.

Through a generous $1.5 million donation, the Decker School is working with community healthcare partners to create the Ford Family Senior Clinic that will expand current geriatric services to include integrated primary care, assessing mental, functional and environmental status, case management, and student education. The clinic's services may be expanded with the addition of new therapy programs, providing opportunities for faculty and student clinical practice. Also located in the Decker School of Nursing is the Kresge Center for Nursing Research and the Simulation and Practice Center which is accredited by the Society for Simulation and Healthcare.

The director will oversee the development, management, and administration of the program including ensuring research, quality instruction, clinical opportunities and accreditation and state requirements are met. The Founding Director will report to the Dean of the Decker School of Nursing, which is slated to become the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. Consultants for the University have developed an initial roadmap for the physical therapy program. The Founding Director will assume leadership for the development and implementation of the initial planning of the DPT program and will clearly articulate a shared vision for the future of the program with both internal and external constituents and partners.  With the opening of a new facility, the director will have the opportunity to create and develop floor space, including simulation laboratories and care clinics.

QUALIFICATIONS: Successful candidates will have a demonstrated record of administrative effectiveness, program development, financial management, and outstanding contributions to physical therapy education. The University seeks a director who will stimulate cutting edge research, including collaborative work across the disciplines. Candidates should have a track record of supporting and promoting diversity.
