Physical Therapy Faculty

What is the most important factor in choosing a PT school? The quality of the faculty, of course.

At Belmont, you will find experienced professionals and teachers, experts in physical therapy with specialties in the areas of sports, orthopedics, pediatrics, geriatrics, and neurologic and clinical electrophysiologic PT. Ongoing research is an important responsibility for faculty in the School of Physical Therapy, but at Belmont, teaching is the top priority of your professors. Your learning takes precedence over all else.
