Laurie Farroni

Congratulations to our Academy of Master Teachers' April Educator of the Month, Dr. Laurie Farroni. She is an Assistant Professor of Instruction and Director of Clinical Education, UTMB Department of Physical Therapy, in the School of Health Professions.

Dr. Farroni is known for her dedication and innovation, creating novel activities to enhance learning in the Department of Physical Therapy. She was instrumental in developing the PT Healer Track, which she facilitates.

"Her passion for teaching is readily apparent from the moment she walks into the classroom. She loves her students and will bend over backwards to make sure we get the best education she can provide," her nomination letter reads. "She presents the information and prompts us to think about it and explore our own biases and personal issues with certain types of patients."

Well done, Dr. Farroni. Thanks for all you contribute to PT education at UTMB.
