The Physical Therapy Faculty Program

Are you a physical therapy educator? Help to prepare the next generation of physical therapists to care for the growing population of people with Parkinson’s through the Physical Therapy Faculty Program at the Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF).

At PDF, we know that physical therapists are critical members of the team caring for people with Parkinson’s. In light of a growing number of people living with Parkinson's, it is even more pressing that physical therapists be prepared to fight the disease on the front lines.

PDF's pilot “train the trainer” program is designed to improve physical therapy care in Parkinson’s by training faculty leaders who can, in turn, educate physical therapy students. Below find dates for our 2017 training (applications will open in February).

Upcoming Training Dates:

The Physical Therapy Faculty Program at PDF
Monday, July 10 through Thursday, July 13

The Physical Therapy Faculty Program at PDF has been made possible with support from Shelley and Rick Friedland and an educational grant from Lundbeck LLC.
