Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science

New Faculty Publications

Scholarship is a hallmark of the Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences Department at the University of Iowa.  Our 10 faculty members continue to contribute to the corpus of physical therapy knowledge.  We would like to share recent publications of our faculty.
