Dual Mentorship

The DPT/PhD (Eng) program is based on a dual mentorship model where students receive advise from an investigator focused on quantitative research and another investigator with experience in more clinically applied research.

Select faculty from Northwestern University carrying out research on Movement and Rehabilitation Sciences participate in the program as mentors. Faculty are based in several different departments including the Departments of Physical Therapy and Human Movement Sciences (PTHMS), Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) and Physiology in the Feinberg School of Medicine and the Departments of Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science/Electrical Engineering in the McCormick School of Engineering.
