Our faculty is devoted to developing dynamic, well-rounded physical therapists.
Since its inception in 1995, the physical therapy program has carefully chosen faculty members who are dedicated to excellence in teaching and learning. Our faculty's credentials are exceptional, demonstrating diverse areas of expertise and clinical experience.
Two key components of the WCU DPT educational experience are the incorporation of a variety of learning styles and a low student-faculty ratio. Our success as a faculty lies in the accomplishments and satisfaction of our graduates as they apply the science of physical therapy in clinics across the country.
