PHILOSOPHY OF RESEARCH
The Texas State Physical Therapy Department faculty value the importance of continued learning and development of the body of professional knowledge for the growth of the physical therapy profession and ultimate improvement in patient care services.
In this regard, the faculty believe that the professional education environment must provide opportunity for, and involvement in, research activities. These research areas, necessary to the advancement of the profession, include basic and applied clinical research, administrative research, and educational research activities.
The Department, therefore, is very committed to the development of research resources with opportunities for the involvement of students, faculty, and community practitioners.
