SPRING 2017 \ PIERCE 37 J oshua Cleland says Franklin Pierce offered him a "perfect fit" early in his career, when he realized that he wanted to combine practice as a physical therapist with teaching and scholarly research. The professor in Pierce's Doctor of Physical Therapy program has indeed done all three. He teaches courses at the Manchester campus, has published more than 200 research studies in peer-reviewed journals and practices clinically at Concord Hospital. He's been recognized with the Rothstein Golden Pen Award for Scientific Writing and the Rose Excellence in Research Award from the American Physical Therapy Association, among other honors. Cleland says the development of his students in the program is always a motivator for him. "It is a thrill to watch students progress from the first day of classes to the end of the program where they are providing quality care to patients," he says.
