Finding NYU’s Most “Physical” Therapists


Who are NYU Steinhardt’s Most “Physical” Therapists? The Department of Physical Therapy recently held a competition to find out.

Students in the department’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program formed teams of two and competed in a series of fitness tests gauging their strength, muscle endurance, speed, and flexibility, among other factors.

Faculty and students throughout the department were encouraged to attend the competition, cheer on their favorite teams, and participate in a raffle benefiting the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research.

Scroll through the photos below for a look at the competition — congratulations to the winning teams!
