We went live at the APTA Combined Sections Meeting in New Orleans Louisana. We talked to Kyle Covington of Duke Physical Therapy and Julie Wiebe about her interactions with @Crossfit on twitter.
Dr. Covington is a neurologic physical therapist and 2004 graduate of the DPT program. He joined the faculty in 2007. After completing his Ph.D. in Educational Research and Policy Analysis at North Carolina State University, he now serves as the DPT program’s director of assessment and evaluation. Dr. Covington’s experience as a neurologic PT is utilized in the classroom during our foundational examination and neurologic practice management coursework.
Dr. Covington’s research interests include professional curricular formation and assessment, collaborative student learning, and professional development of physical therapists.
Kyle currently is serving as the CSM program I gotta committee chair for APTA’s Education Section, is a member of the APTA Special Committee to review House documents and is President of the North Carolina Physical Therapy Association
