Thank you, Raziel Rizzo (DPT 2020) and Elise Tarrant (DPT 2015, and PT Orthopedic Resident Class of 2018), for representing our department and our profession with your informative and inspirational words and photos! This wonderful project was created for the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Disability Issues, highlighting how one's unique challenges provide perspective on one’s work, shape our lives, and make us better people.
Congratulations to the DPT Class of 2019 on the successful completion of their case reports, and on their outstanding presentations at the UCSF/SFSU Graduate Program in Physical annual Case Reports Day on July 27! The students presented their work to a large and enthusiastic audience of faculty, students, clinicians, and family & friends. The students presented cases ranging from acute care, acute rehabilitation, outpatient orthopedics, sports rehabilitation, complex neurologic rehabilitation, and more.
On July 13, 2018, the physical therapy community said goodbye to a dear friend and alumnus of UCSF/SFSU, Peter I. Edgelow, PT, MA, DPT. Peter earned the reputation as the expert physical therapist in treating patients with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS). He improved the lives of thousands of patients with intractable pain and inspired physical therapists and others around the world. Peter developed the ENVEST (Edgelow Neurovascular Entrapment Syndrome Treatment) approach, working closely with David Butler and Lorimer Moseley to further refine it.
