Expanding Pediatric Physical Therapy Services

By: Graduate Studies on

Like many parts of the country, central Florida has a shortage of physical therapists who are specially trained to work with children. Now the University of Central Florida’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program is partnering with a leading provider of physical therapy services in the region, UCP of Central Florida, to address this shortage. The partnership will enable UCF to extend its expertise in pediatric physical therapy to UCP of Central Florida, a charter school with seven regional campuses. The UCF-UCP collaboration could eventually lead to the development of an American Physical Therapy Association-credentialed Clinical Residency Program.
