This year our American Physical Therapy Association - National Conference (Combined Sections Meeting) will be held virtually for the first time during the month of February.  Pacific University is well represented at CSM 2021.  Core faculty, adjunct faculty, and alumna from the Physical Therapy Program are presenting their scholarship in a variety of formats.        

They will retain their respective roles as director of the School of Physical Therapy and School of Physician Assistant Studies.

Dr. Kevin Chui contributed to an Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapy document, “Essential Competencies in the Care of Older Adults at the Completion of a Physical Therapist Postprofessional Program of Study.” 

Dr. Kevin Chui, PT, PhD is a member of GeriEDGE, a sub-committee of the Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapy’s Practice Committee, which consists of a group of researchers, educators, and clinicians from around the country. 

Chui succeeds Dr. Richard Rutt, who is retiring at the end of the academic year.
