Spring CSU DPT Program Clinical Education Update

As the flowers begin to bloom and the grass turns greener, springtime brings forth a reminder to me of the beauty of change.  We all know that change can sometimes be scary and intimidating; however, it is also critical that we continually evolve with new insight that we have gained.  I am currently away from the University on sabbatical and brainstorming some potential revisions to our DPT clinical education curriculum.  We already have a strong clinical curriculum, due largely in part to your valuable contributions as our clinical partners.  However, healthcare and education are constantly changing and we must make sure that we continue to be responsive and focused on the future.  Through my sabbatical work, I have enjoyed talking with many of our clinical educators about what is important to you in choosing to work with our DPT students and how we may be able to do things even better.  I am extremely grateful for the feedback I have received thus far, and I hope that I can continue to talk to many of you in the coming months.  If you have any ideas for us regarding our clinical curriculum, I welcome them!  Please don’t hesitate to reach out with your suggestions or if you have any questions at any time.  I am available via email at or via phone at 216-687-3903.

Thanks for all you continue to do!
