Dr. Robert Frampton

Teaching Area(s): Doctor of Physical Therapy

The reason I went into education years ago was to help students learn the complicated concepts in physical therapy education in a way that made an impact on them and changed the way PT’s interact with patients and clients.

Physical Therapy Facilities


The Physical Therapy program will occupy 13,000 square feet in the newly built Gallaher Hall. The program will have two laboratory spaces with state-of-the-art equipment and one dedicated classroom. The program will also benefit from a separate Motion Analysis Laboratory equipped with a Vicon© Motion Capture System integrated ATMI Force Plates and a wireless Delsys® Trigno™ system.
