Growth, in some curious way, I suspect, depends on being always in motion just a little bit, one way or another. –Norman Mailer
There must be some truth to this quote. Folks in the WashU Program in Physical Therapyhave been in motion not just a little bit but rather a lot over the past year, and my how we have grown! This annual report highlights growth across all areas of our mission –growth that resulted in a nearly 50% increase in the number of Program employees in the past year alone! This includes clinical growth with the addition of new practice locations and service lines, research growth with the hiring of new faculty investigators, ongoing growth and evolution of our DPT degree as we undergo curriculum renewal focused on competency-based education,and growth of our awareness of and connections with our local St. Louis community through education and outreach. With all this growth, we are a Program in motion, moving forward at a rapid pace to advance health through movement.
