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 Foundation.

At the Parkinson's Foundation, 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.

Our “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 upcoming training dates.

Upcoming Training Dates:

Monday, July 10 through Thursday, July 13
Center for Neurorehabilitation at Boston University

The Physical Therapy Faculty Program at the Parkinson's Foundation has been made possible with support from Shelley and Rick Friedland.
