Name of creator
Susan S. Deusinger joined the faculty at Washington University in 1978 to coordinate clinical education for baccalaureate-level students enrolled in the Program in Physical Therapy. In 1980, she developed the program's first faculty clinical practice - a community-based service. Subsequently, in collaboration with her colleague and husband, Robert H. Deusinger, PhD, now an associate professor emeritus of physical therapy, an on-site evidence-based faculty practice was established. This has grown into a major outpatient service that is fully integrated into the School of Medicine's Faculty Practice Plan.
Upon her retirement in 2014, Dr. Deusinger had served for 24 years as director of the Program in Physical Therapy and achieved the rank of professor of physical therapy and of neurology. She now serves as professor emerita.
