World Spine Care
The School of Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Sciences has completed a Memorandum of Understanding with World Spine Care (WSC) to become a clinical, educational and research partner in their international efforts. Founded in 2008 by Dr. Scott Haldeman, WSC was launched to fill the profound gap in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions found in the developing world through:
- Providing an innovative clinical model which involves an interprofessional, multidisciplinary approach to spinal disorders
- incorporating the best available scientific evidence into the cultural, political, medical, and economic values of targeted communities
- integrating its approach into existing local healthcare systems to ensure that the care provided to people with spinal disorders continues on a permanent basis.
