BOARD CERTIFICATIONS


BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Chang developed a passion for physical therapy after her own experiences as a patient rehabilitating from activity and sports-related injuries. Her bachelor’s degree in Public Health at UC Berkeley supports her belief that prevention is just as important as the treatment aspect of health care. She received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at USC where she participated in community outreach programs and assisted in several research studies. After graduation and licensure, she entered a residency program at Stanford Health Care to specialize in orthopedic conditions. In addition to treating patients at UCSF, she also assists in the classrooms of UCSF’s DPT program and has served as a clinical instructor for PT students. When she is not in clinic, Jocelyn enjoys hiking, camping, traveling, and playing music.


CLINICAL EXPERTISE

Dr. Chang believes in a holistic and evidence-based approach to physical therapy involving a multidisciplinary team. She prizes patient-centered and individualized care, and understands that an injured region can affect the rest of the body. Movement re-education is a heavy emphasis in her practice. Through education, exercise, manual therapy, and movement re-training, Jocelyn’s aim is to equip patients with the necessary tools to manage their conditions.
