Touro University Nevada School of Physical Therapy

Touro University Nevada School of Physical Therapy offers an Entry-level Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) program.

Touro University Nevada School of Physical Therapy was founded in 2008 and offers an Entry-level Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) program. The School of Physical Therapy’s philosophy is aligned with the institutional mission of To Serve, To Lead, and To Teach.

It is the role of the physical therapist (PT) to help individuals enhance the quality of their lives – by providing therapies, consultation, and educational outreach. Our Doctor of Physical Therapy program will prepare students for all this and more, through our unique focus on creating practitioner leaders who thrive in a variety of healthcare contexts.

Touro University Nevada was established to help address critical needs in health care and education, and as a resource for community service in the state of Nevada. A non-profit, private institution affiliated with an international system of higher education, the university opened its doors in 2004 with 78 medical students. Today, TUN is home to more than 1,400 students in a wide range of degree programs in allied health sciences and education, as well as osteopathic medicine. Many of these programs are the first of their kind in the state of Nevada.

The TUN campus is also home to both a full-service, multi-specialty physicians office, staffed by practicing faculty members, and a multidisciplinary Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities. In addition to serving the community through care, both facilities serve as on site learning laboratories for students across the disciplines.

Mission: To provide quality educational programs in the fields of health care and education in concert with the Judaic commitment to social justice, intellectual pursuit, and service to humanity.

Nevada Physical Therapy Association President, Dr. Jen Nash and our own Dr. Tricia Catalino are in Reno for an association meeting tonight and what do we do when we travel? Well drop in for a visit with our alumni, of course! Drs. Nash and Catalino are shown here with Dr. Ray Gorman (2014)! Ray, does it freak you out a little bit that you have been a therapist longer than you were a student here at Touro? Seems like just yesterday we were sitting here chatting. So good to see you!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! To Dr. Bradley Hill (2015) and Lindsey who welcomed Declan Jordan Hill on September 1. Declan weighted 8 lbs, 13 oz. Dr. Hill, you look like you were born to hold that sweet little boy!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! To Dr. Adriana (Calderon) LeChuga (2015) and Justin who welcomed baby Zolan on August 31. Zolan was born at 7:48pm, weighing in at 8 lbs 1 oz and 20 inches. Adriana says that she is doing well, and is getting stronger every day following an emergency c-section.

Spread the word! Nevada Goes Falls Free! Maybe you have a patient or a relative who would benefit from attending the Stepping On program.

Filed under, "It's a small world!" Dr. Tricia Catalino and Dr. Jessica Kase (2014) ran into each other while they were both tailgating at Notre Dame!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! To Dr. Steven (2016) and Laura Jensen who welcomed Maximus Keith Jensen on August 27. Little Max wasn't so little weighing in at 9 lbs, 8 oz and 22 inches. This makes baby number three for the Jensens! We couldn't be happier for you all!

CONGRATULATIONS! To Drs. Kylor and Kasi (Wheatley) Snook (both 2018s) who welcomed our home-grown Touro baby, Ari Katrin Snook. Ari was born August 27th at 8:40am, weighing 6lbs 3oz and 18 inches long. She decided to make her appearance a little early at 37 wks and 6 days and was breech, but Mama and Ari are doing just fine! What a great birthday present for proud Papa, Kylor!

CONGRATULATIONS!! To Dr. Jessica (Young) Kase (2014) and her husband Ben who are the proud parents (again!) of little Nolan Scott Kase. Nolan made his entrance a little early at 36 weeks weighing 4 lbs, 6 oz at 17” long. He had to spend a week in the hospital gaining a little strength, but tonight the family, including Big Sis Addie (who just turned two), is home healthy and happy! We all wish the Kase family a lifetime of loving happiness!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! To Dr. Ryan Carpenter, MDT (2015) who has earned certification in Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment through the McKenzie Institute. It took Ryan about 2 ½ years to take the four courses, A through D, and then take the Credentialing Exam. During that time he worked on implementing his training through his clinical practice. The biggest change that it made in his treatment, he says, is that it has given him a more “hands off” approach and has taught him to empower the patient to participate actively in their own treatment. He chose to dive into MDT because of the effectiveness of the method that he saw during his last Clinical Experience. Ryan emphasizes that the McKenzie method is more than just exercises; it is a standardized approach to patient care that provides for a systematic method of evaluation, classification, and treatment. Well done, Dr. Carpenter! We are so proud of you!
