UVMC Center for Sports Medicine's Physical Therapists Earn Doctorate
At the present time, only 20 percent of American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) physical therapists in the country have earned a Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT). This includes two of the three physical therapists with the UVMC Center for Sports Medicine. Physical Therapists Greg Schultz and Brian Jans have earned their doctorate degree, while Sports Med’s third PT, Greg Hoying, who has a master’s degree, will complete his doctorate this year.
Schultz, a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, is the strength coach for Tippecanoe High School and an instructor of the summer program, Explosive Speed and Power.
Jans, a Board Certified Sports Specialist, is the center’s Clinical Education Coordinator. Most recently he coordinated a symposium on the Current Concepts in Lower Extremity Sports Injuries.
Hoying works exclusively at UVMC’s sports center, located at 450 N. Hyatt St. in Tipp City. Patients range from competitive athletes and weekend warriors to clients with age-related problems such as arthritis.
According to the APTA, there are approximately 68,000 physical therapists in the country, and nearly 7,000 in Ohio.
