University of South Florida

Faculty, USF-UWF DPT Educational Partnership

http://health.usf.edu/medicine/dpt/

The UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA is a Carnegie Tier 1 Research-Extensive university with eleven colleges and four campuses serving the Tampa Bay area. The University enrolls more than 40,000 students annually in 79 undergraduate disciplines, 87 master’s and specialist programs, and 25 doctoral programs, including the MD, DPT and PharmD. USF Health is a comprehensive academic health sciences center comprising the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy and Public Health, along with the Schools of Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Sciences and Biomedical Sciences. The University’s diverse population reflects the ethnic and cultural heritage of the Tampa Bay region, a community of some 2.5 million persons. We are strongly connected to both local and global communities and are passionate about enriching the lives of citizens of Tampa Bay, the state of Florida and beyond, through better health. We are engaged in initiatives that transform the way healthcare is understood, taught and delivered; which, in turn, strengthens our communities.

The UNIVERSITY OF WEST FLORIDA, with campuses in Pensacola and along the Emerald Coast, serves a student population of more than 12,500. UWF’s mission is to provide students with access to high-quality, relevant and affordable undergraduate and graduate learning experiences; to transmit, apply and discover knowledge through teaching, scholarship, research and public service; and to engage in community partnerships that respond to mutual concerns and opportunities and that advance the economy and quality of life in the region. It was named one of “America’s Top Colleges” by Forbes Magazine in 2011 and 2012. Small class sizes and personalized attention from dedicated faculty make UWF “different by design.”  

The Florida Panhandle is a rapidly growing part of the state of Florida and home to a health care industry that is impressive both in size and sophistication. It is home to a growing senior population and a significant military presence. USF and UWF forged a DPT Educational Partnership to address the shortage of physical therapists in Florida’s Panhandle. The Florida State Legislature approved and funded the partnership in 2012, with the first cohort of students matriculating in summer 2014.

The USF Health School of Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Sciences (SPTRS) has created two (2) new unique faculty positions to implement the partnership between these institutions. These two Assistant/Associate Professors will collaborate with the 22 dynamic Tampa-based faculty in delivering the second and third years of a cutting-edge, 21st century DPT curriculum. They will be geographically located in Pensacola, reporting through the Regional Associate Program Director (also Pensacola-based) to the USF SPTRS Director in Tampa. These faculty members have the opportunity for significant mentoring, jointly serving as preceptors for a maximum of 12 students per class. The successful faculty candidate will contribute to the School’s interprofessional educational and research collaborations with other public and private entities in the Pensacola region. Faculty rank, salary, and start-up packages are highly competitive, commensurate with academic qualifications. Both are 12-month positions and each will remain open until filled.
