Craig Wassinger  

While attending physical therapy school, Assistant Professor Craig Wassinger was inspired by an orthopedics professor who challenged students to consistently think critically and actively about problems. When given the opportunity to teach in biomechanics as well as orthopedics alongside an experienced group of colleges at ETSU,  Dr. Wassinger became driven to instill those same lessons in his own students.

For Dr. Wassinger, the most enjoyable aspect of teaching in the Physical Therapy department at ETSU is getting to know his students on an individual level and building those relationships throughout the students’ time in the program.

When asked why students should pursue a degree in Physical Therapy, Dr. Wassinger remarked that, as a growing profession, Physical Therapy offers an environment in which there is always something new to learn and a variety of people to help within the different clinical services.
