The Department of Physical Therapy hopes to foster a community of scholarly inquiry and reflective practice for physical therapy in New Hampshire.

Through the individual and collective faculty scholarship the Department aims to advance the body of knowledge contributing to health, rehabilitation innovation and reform through the scholarship of discovery, integration, engagement, and teaching. The faculty aims to be a model for students as professional, reflective, self motivated and directed adult learners that are respectful, culturally sensitive and socially responsible.

The Department provides an academic presence for Physical Therapy in center of New Hampshire and plans to host an annual physical therapy symposium and clinical education workshops on campus in collaboration with community and clinical education partners that engages physical therapists throughout the state starting in 2019.
