Welcome to the Physical Therapy LibGuide,
created for the Physical Therapy students of Brenau.
Purpose of this Subject Guide
The purpose of the Physical Therapy Subject Guide is to enhance the capability of students to identify, locate, and access the best evidence available for the evidence based practice of physical therapy.
The mission of the Brenau Department of Physical Therapy is to produce extraordinary physical therapy practitioners. We will provide students with learning environments and opportunities dedicated to the student’s individual development as well as the advancement of physical therapy practice.

2. Be scholarly physical therapists with the capacity to routinely integrate the best evidence available into their practice.
3. Use sound clinical judgment to make optimal decisions for and with their clients.
