Neurologic Residency Program
The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor Doctor of Physical Therapy program and Baylor Scott & White Health have partnered together to create a 12-month Neurologic Residency Program. Residency programs provide in depth learning experiences guided toward specialty practice.
Takuto Nakagawa, DPT, is the first resident in the program during the inaugural year. He deeply values his previous educational experiences that have led him to focus on the neurologic field of study. As part of his motivation for joining this residency program, he states, "I want to be the therapist who walks alongside a hemiplegic patient to celebrate their successes. I also want to be the therapist to empathize with the incredible turmoil patients face and be there to motivate and lift them up."
