Program Highlights

Students are the highlight of our program. They are constantly involved in service to their future profession and to their community. Below are just a few examples:

Frankie-Ann McCauley, a student in the 6th and final year of our program, presented a poster at the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) in February 2022, in San Antonio, TX. The poster title was "Mentoring New Faculty in a Physical Therapy Program" and was presented in collaboration with Drs. Laura Gras and Barb Belyea.

Students at CSM

Members of the Ithaca College Physical Therapy Student of Color organization (ICPTSOC), received the opportunity to attend the Combined sections meeting this past weekend in San Antonio Texas. Students presented, attended various sessions, networking events and connected with many students and clinicians across the country.
