Add to my Calendar



The Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science is starting a bimonthly Grand Rounds that is open to all clinicians and researchers interested in the topic of rehabilitation. For our inaugural session, we have invited Shirley A. Sahrmann, PT, PhD, FAPTA, to discuss movement system diagnosis and its importance. Dr. Sahrmann will talk about this novel approach to diagnosing movement disorders and will take questions from attendees about the future of the physical therapy profession and the use of this approach. If you have not heard Shirley speak in the past, you will not want to miss this opportunity to learn from a true pioneer in the physical therapy profession!







Shirley A. Sahrmann, PT, PhD, FAPTA, is a renowned teacher, researcher, and clinician. She began teaching in 1961 and spent 54 years educating two generations of physical therapists. Dr. Sahrmann became a Catherine Worthingham Fellow of the American Physical Therapy Association in 1986, and in 1998 was selected to receive the Mary McMillan Award, the highest honor of the Association. Her first book, Diagnosis and Treatment of Movement Impairment Syndromes, has been translated into seven languages; her second book, Movement System Impairment Syndromes of the Cervical and Thoracic Spines and the Extremities, has been equally influential in educating physical therapists to embrace their responsibility to guide patients toward optimal health and functional independence through movement.
