Nova Southeastern University (NSU) is offering a non-clinical Faculty Residency Program, starting January 2019. The mission of the NSU PT Faculty Residency Program is to develop well-prepared, competent faculty by providing a supportive, mentored environment in a manner that fosters excellence in teaching, service, scholarship, and governance in academia. The 18 month program consists of a didactic portion which focuses on interactive learning in 4 key pillars of academia: teaching, scholarship, service and academic governance. Residents receive one to one mentoring with a physical therapy faculty member as they integrate the didactic components of the curriculum into academic experiences. The curriculum is delivered in a hybrid format (i.e., primarily distance with some face-to-face components), allowing residents to work full-time while enrolled in the program. Mentored teaching, research, and service experiences will be customized, based on the resident’s career development goals.
This 18-month residency program begins in January and consists of four semesters of coursework accompanied by mentorship from experienced faculty members. Major content areas include:
Teaching: educational theory, curriculum design, instructional delivery, student assessment
Coursework is accompanied by individual mentorship from an experienced faculty member, designed to fit the needs of the individual resident.
During the last half of the Program residents will be assigned to teach in a course in the NSU Professional DPT curriculum. This experience will be in collaboration with faculty mentors.
