April 2, 2010
Marie Wade, MS, PT, OCS, Director of Physical Rehabilitation & Sports Medicine at Franklin Memorial Hospital, is pleased to announce that Marco Madison, PT, DPT, has completed his doctorate of physical therapy degree from the University of New England, being the first physical therapist in the department to do so.
The American Physical Therapy Association has endorsed Vision 2020, a vision for the physical therapy profession that states by 2020, physical therapy will be provided by physical therapists who are doctors of physical therapy. Earlier the profession was pursued as a bachelor’s or master’s degree; now most physical therapy programs in the United States have transitioned to the doctorate physical therapy degree.
Madison completed a post-professional transition DPT, intended for practicing clinicians who graduated with their bachelor’s degree in physical therapy. It allows these professionals to continue in their educational experience and advance their degree to that of the doctorate in physical therapy.
Madison has worked at Franklin Memorial Hospital as a physical therapist for 12 years. He provides physical therapy services at Franklin Memorial Hospital (FMH) Outpatient Services in Livermore Falls every Monday through Wednesday, and on Fridays, treating orthopedics, sports medicine injuries, neurological conditions, and work-related injuries.
FMH Outpatient Services is conveniently located in the Central Plaza at 76 Main Street in Livermore Falls. For an appointment call 897-2600.
