Yasser Salem, PHD, PT, is among the first 100 physical therapists in the United States to complete the Education Leadership Institute of the American Physical Therapy Association.

The yearlong fellowship is designed to “develop innovative and influential leaders in physical therapy education who can function within a changing politico-sociocultural environment.” The program connects participants to experienced academic administrators and highly qualified faculty for mentoring and peer networking.

“I’m delighted by this fellowship and will do my best to uphold the Education Leadership Institute’s values of excellence,” said Dr. Salem, UNT Health Science Center Professor of Physical Therapy.
