The DPT Class of 2014 enjoyed a day at Morgan's Wonderland on Friday, April 20th. The class received a tour of the park. Students were able to enjoy many of the rides and experience Sensory Village. Below are links to the park and a CBS news piece on this extraordinary park.

Thanks Lakeway Aquatic Therapy and Wellness Center!
Melody Medley-Keith and her staff at Lakeway Aquatic Therapy and Wellness Center hosted our first year DPT students last week. Melody never hesitates when we call and ask - "can we come again?" This is the fourth year in a row that the staff there have opened their arms to provide this awesome learning opportunity. The students experienced aquatic physical therapy firsthand at this unique facility and with the help of a very knowledgeable staff. Thank you so much for your support of the Texas State DPT students and faculty!
DPT Students Support South Central Texas Boys and Girls Club Day
On September 17th, the DPT I and DPT II students participated in the south Central Texas Boys and Girls Clubs Day at Sewell Park on the Texas State campus. Here are some photos they wanted to share!
Relay for Life
The DPT students participated in Relay for Life, which is an all night event that serves as a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Our Texas State DPT team raised $1,610 for the society and were very proud to represent the PT Department as well as Texas State University. Students participated and placed in several events throughout the night. Thank you students for being involved in a great cause!!!

On May 31st and June 3rd, the PT Department hosted the orientation for the DPT Class of 2014. Students were able to meet the faculty and staff, learn about the different services offered at Texas State University, learn about each other's learning styles, and participate in team building activities with Dr. Steve Spivey. Everyone had a fun and exciting time. Best wishes to the new class!
Recently, the Department of Physical Therapy acquired seven infant simulators to assist in the pediatric course taught by Dr. Mary Elizabeth Parker. While Dr. Parker prefers to bring in live children to facilitate learning in her course, these models will provide additional opportunities to work on handling skills, especially with management of tubes and lines.
