For the first time in FOX’s history, two candidates will graduate from the clinically excellent FOX Geriatric Residency Program in Physical Therapy.
CHERRY HILL, N.J., January 30, 2015 – Fox Rehabilitation’s Geriatric Residency Program in Physical Therapy has enrolled two Doctors of Physical Therapy for the first time since FOX established the residency program in 2009.
“This program will better allow me to treat my patients with a higher understanding of their needs using advanced clinical knowledge in geriatrics.”
The class of 2015 includes Dr. Andrew Harnish and Dr. David Tran, who hope to complete their residencies in December 2015.
Andrew Harnish, PT, DPT started his career at FOX in 2008 as an Electronic Medical Records Specialist and is now employed as a Physical Therapist. “The progress I have made and the challenges I have overcome while working with the older adult population has motivated me to pursue the Geriatric Residency Program to advance my clinical knowledge, experience and skillset in the older adult population,” he said.
“This program will better allow me to treat my patients with a higher understanding of their needs using advanced clinical knowledge in geriatrics,” said David Tran, PT, DPT, who joined FOX in 2013.
The American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties accredited 12-month program emphasizes excellence in geriatric clinical care and leadership in healthcare. Residents in the program have the privilege of studying under and interacting with faculty experts from Thomas Jefferson University, Temple University, and numerous Board Certified practicing FOX clinical instructors.
“The modernization of healthcare toward wellness and value-based care has magnified the importance of clinical specialization and residency training,” said William Dieter, PT, DPT, GCS. “Fox Rehabilitation’s belief in people and giving them the tools to succeed is evident within the geriatric residency program. The program develops a truly unique blend of clinical excellence and leadership that I use on a daily basis as the Director of PT Clinical Services and the Fox Geriatric Residency in Physical Therapy.”
Fox Rehabilitation has graduated one clinician in each of the years from 2010 through 2014. All five clinicians (Dr. Travis King, 2010; Dr. Heather Cronin, 2011; Dr. Tatyana Mikhats, 2012; Dr. William Dieter, 2013; and Dr. Daniel Quirk, 2014) have remained at FOX and now hold leadership positions within the organization.
The sixth geriatric residency in the nation, FOX’s program is the first to be housed in a private practice. The mission of the program is to accelerate the development of primary care physical therapists into clinical experts in geriatric care.
“Fox Rehabilitation, and I personally, have a commitment to clinical excellence and professional development,” said Dr. Tim Fox, PT, DPT, GCS, Founder and CEO. “This residency program is part of that commitment.”
