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.

The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) College of Health Sciences invites nominations and applications for the position of Program Director, Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program, Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, at the associate professor or professor level. The successful candidate will be a talented and experienced national leader, who will cultivate excellence in research, teaching, and service. This year-round position represents an excellent opportunity for an outstanding individual to build on an established program and shape the direction of new initiatives. Multiple research opportunities are available in both community and clinical settings. Appointment at the Associate Professor/ Professor level is commensurate with a history of teaching excellence and scholarship.

THE PROGRAM: Founded in 1993, the original Master of Physical Therapy Program transitioned to a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program (http://chs.utep.edu/pt/) in 2010. The DPT Program admits 36 students per year. Each cohort attends classes and clinical rotations for 8 consecutive semesters, graduating 31 months after entering the program. The current full-time and adjunct faculty members have expertise in acute care, cardiopulmonary, integument, service-learning, orthopedics, neuromuscular rehabilitation, geriatrics, and pediatrics. DPT faculty members hold a primary appointment in the DPT Program and may participate in the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences PhD Program. Faculty members are also encouraged to collaborate in teaching and research with other programs across the University, clinical partners, and other regional universities.

THE DEPARTMENT: The Department of Rehabilitation Sciences currently includes four academic units: Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech-Language Pathology, and Rehabilitation Counseling. All units offer a graduate degree (DPT, MOT, MS in SLP, MRC). A pre-professional undergraduate degree in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences is also planned. Departmental faculty members actively participate in the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences PhD Program jointly administered by the College of Health Sciences and School of Nursing. Its full-time faculty members are widely recognized for their research and teaching on rehabilitation sciences in a Hispanic border context. The department thrives in recently renovated facilities with easy access to the UTEP campus, Fort Bliss, public transportation, major medical centers, and downtown El Paso. A $2.3 million renovation updated and expanded teaching laboratories and virtual reality research facilities, and a clinic for on-site faculty practice, clinical teaching, and research. Renovation of the anatomy laboratory is in the planning stages and will result in state-of-the-art anatomical science education facilities.

THE COLLEGE: The College of Health Sciences provides teaching, research, and service related to the applied health sciences (http://chs.utep.edu). It has five departments (Clinical Laboratory Science, Kinesiology, Public Health Sciences, Rehabilitation Sciences, and Social Work), a cooperative Pharmacy program with the University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy, and a collaborative relationship with the University of Texas at Houston School of Public Health-El Paso regional campus. Strong collaborative ties also exist with the UTEP School of Nursing, the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, and the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine in El Paso. The College has over 60 full-time faculty members, serves over 2000 students, and is nationally recognized for its innovative research in border health and Hispanic health and health disparities. It has a record of success with NIH and external health research funding. College faculty members have been awarded $15.6 million in external funding during the past five years for their innovative health research projects. They conduct research that spans basic and clinical science, from community to global health. The breadth of their research expertise includes health education and promotion, health literacy, chronic and communicable disease prevention and management, maternal-child health, nutrition, exercise science, disability and rehabilitation sciences, social stigma, and mental health. A cadre of graduate students assists faculty in conducting a variety of projects relevant to improving health outcomes in the US-Mexico border region. Our $60 million 135,000 sq. ft. building on the main campus houses state-of-the-art clinical and research laboratories, innovative teaching and clinical simulation spaces, and faculty and administrative offices.

THE UNIVERSITY: The University of Texas at El Paso is an emerging national research university at the heart of the US-Mexico border region committed to the ideals of access and excellence. A leader among Hispanic-serving institutions, UTEP enrolls over 23,000 students, about 80 percent of them Hispanic, and is the only doctoral research university in the nation with a majority Mexican-American student body.

UTEP offers 71 bachelor’s, 76 master’s, and 20 doctoral programs with more in development. UTEP’s over $83 million in research spending a year ranks the University among the top 200 universities in the nation. Its more than $40 million in federal research spending ranks fourth among all Texas public universities.

The center for intellectual capital in the region, UTEP awarded more than 110,000 degrees since its founding in 1914. A major economic engine in the Paso del Norte region, UTEP is the fifth largest employer in El Paso with more than $418 million in expenditures in 2013-2014. UTEP adds $1.3 billion annually in business volume to the region’s economy, and UTEP students donated more than 560,581 hours of community service, an equivalent of $13.1 million, in 2012-2013.

A pre-professional undergraduate degree in Health and Rehabilitation is being planned. Departmental faculty members actively participate in the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences PhD Program, which is jointly administered by the College of Health Sciences and School of Nursing. The department has approximately 228 graduate students and 19 full-time faculty members, who are widely recognized for their research and teaching in rehabilitation sciences in a Hispanic border context.

The College: The College of Health Sciences provides teaching, research, and service related to the applied health sciences (chs.utep.edu). It has five departments (Clinical Laboratory Science, Kinesiology, Public Health Sciences, Rehabilitation Sciences, and Social Work), a cooperative Pharmacy program with the University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy, and a collaborative relationship with the University of Texas at Houston School of Public Health-El Paso regional campus. Strong collaborative ties also exist with the UTEP School of Nursing, the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, and the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine in El Paso. The College, which is staffed by over 60 full-time faculty members and serves over 2100 students, is nationally recognized for its innovative research in border health, and Hispanic health and health disparities. It has a record of success with NIH and external health research funding. The College was awarded $15.6 million in external funding during the past five years for its innovative health research projects. College faculty conduct research that spans basic and clinical science, from community to global health. The breadth of their research expertise includes health education and promotion, health literacy, chronic and communicable disease prevention and management, maternal-child health, nutrition, exercise science, disability and rehabilitation sciences, social stigma, and mental health. A cadre of graduate students assists faculty in conducting a variety of projects relevant to improving health outcomes in the U.S.-Mexico border region. The program is housed in the newly renovated Campbell Building, with dedicated clinical and rehabilitation sciences teaching laboratory space.  Renovation of the anatomy laboratory is in the planning stages and will result in state of the art anatomical science education facilities. In addition, our 138,000 sq. ft. building on the main campus houses state-of-the-art clinical and research laboratories, and innovative teaching and clinical simulation spaces.

The University: The University of Texas at El Paso is an emerging national research university at the heart of the U.S.-Mexico border region committed to the ideals of access and excellence. A leader among Hispanic-serving institutions, UTEP enrolls more than 23,000 students, about 80 percent of them Hispanic, and is the only doctoral research university in the nation with a student body that is a majority Mexican-American. UTEP is designated by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as “Community Engaged” and by the US Department of Education as “Hispanic-Serving.” UTEP faculty are nationally recognized for their commitment to student success, teaching, research, scholarship, and artistic expression.

UTEP comprises 8 colleges and offers 70 bachelor's, 76 master's, and 20 doctoral degrees, with more in development. UTEP's over $83 million in research spending a year ranks the University among the top 200 universities in the nation; and its more than $40 million in federal research spending ranks fourth among all Texas public universities. UTEP is currently undergoing a transformation, which will benefit from over $300 million in recent building expansions, renovations, and infrastructure improvements.

The center for intellectual capital in the region, UTEP has awarded more than 110,000 degrees since its founding in 1914. UTEP is one of the major economic engines in the Paso del Norte region, generating $369 million in local business volume and 7,050 jobs, and contributing $452 million in household income. UTEP offers exciting programs that are open to the public, including Division I athletics; award-winning theater, dance, and music; the internationally acclaimed Stanlee and Gerald Rubin Center for the Visual Arts; the Centennial Museum and Desert Gardens; and continuing and lifelong education opportunities.

In its 2014 national university rankings, Washington Monthly again ranked UTEP in the top 10.  In addition, UTEP maintained its #1 ranking as the nation’s leading university in fostering student social mobility. Our success in achieving both affordability and high quality in the low-resourced US-Mexico border setting requires a deep commitment by all UTEP faculty, staff, and our many friends and supporters.
