Nabil Falconer PT ’21: Pacific University’s Outstanding Service to the Physical Therapy Program
Nabil Falconer PT ’21, who is from Anchorage, Alaska, has received a 2021 Outstanding Service to the Physical Therapy Program Award from the Pacific University School of Physical Therapy & Athletic Training. The award is presented to a student who demonstrates meaningful contributions to directly advance the mission and values of the physical therapy program.
“Nabil was a member of our program-based Physical Therapy Day of Service in 2018. More significantly, he was a member of The Collective, a program-led organization to foster a culture of diversity and inclusion for physical therapy students, faculty and staff,” said nominators. “He was appointed as the president of this organization in June 2020, and was an accomplished visionary to lead this group on a robust professional trajectory.”
Falconer is among three May 2021 graduates receiving the award for Outstanding Service to the Physical Therapy Program. Others include Clark Day PT ’21 and Kera Akiyama PT '21.
The doctor of physical therapy program prepares well-rounded candidates for certification and licensure as healthcare professionals who can deliver person-centered care. Pacific offers a curriculum that is balanced in the areas of orthopedic, neurologic, and general physical therapy with attention to the needs of pediatric patients, geriatric patients, and other special populations.
