The Linda Crane Lecture

Striving for Excellence
Thursday, February 18, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Sherrill H. Hayes, PT, PhD

Historically, McMillan lecturers have challenged us to define excellence in physical therapy academic programs. While some have addressed “environmental excellence”,there are other qualities like “institutional sagas” and “stories” that help create a unique and lasting bond between the faculty and their students, inspiring a legacy of belonging and lasting commit­ment. Building upon those qualities of a saga (loyalty and a credible story of uncommon effort and achievement) and juxtaposing these with Linda Crane and her life, a vision of excellence in physical therapy educational programs will be explored.
