Clarkson University Doctor of Physical Therapy Students Lead in Their Profession

Clarkson University Doctor of Physical Therapy students continue to serve as leaders in their profession.

MacKenzie Sullivan of Carthage, N.Y., Samantha Maki of Potsdam, N.Y., Meghan Knight of North Hampton, N.H., and Lachelle Begay of Alburquerque, N.M., attended two courses by the Leadership Institute in Physical Therapy and are on their way to completing their requirements toward a Certification in Leadership Development.

Maki also was the recipient of the New York Physical Therapy Association Student Participation Award for 2011 and attended the American Physical Therapy Association National Student Conclave in Minneapolis in October.

Samantha Hadley of Carthage, N.Y., was the 2011 Clarkson Physical Therapy Director’s Intern to the New York Physical Therapy Association (NYPTA) Board of Directors meeting. Jason Ury of Deer Park, N.Y., has been chosen as the intern for 2012 and is attending the board meeting this month.

Hadley, Kelly Einbecker of Aurora, Ill., Ashley Snide of Altona, N.Y., and Courtney Bilow of Ellenburg Depot, N.Y., attended the NYPTA conference in Rye, N.Y., in October.

Lindsay McLaughlin of East Greenbush, N.Y., presented a platform presentation of her research with faculty member Prof. George Fulk at the same conference.

Robyn Baumgartner of Bethel, Conn., Rachel Boziwick of Northport, N.Y., and Brittany Monroe of Massena, N.Y., attended the NYPTA Leadership Development Workshop and Delegate Assembly in May in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

Clarkson’s Department of Physical Therapy is home to 70 undergraduate students, 50 graduate students and eight full-time faculty members immersed in the hands-on study of human physiology, movement and healing.

Clarkson undergraduates study in a pre-physical therapy concentration, which can be completed alongside any other major. Successful completion of the pre-physical therapy concentration guarantees them a spot in Clarkson’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program (DPT) program, the highest degree available in the field.

Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
