Inaugural Women's Health Residents Dr. Brea Rhein and Dr. Alex Lanty

Saint Louis University (SLU) and SSM Health Physical Therapy are proud to announce that the SLU SSM Health Physical Therapy Women’s Health Residency Program has moved from the development to the candidacy stage of accreditation with the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE).   

Program Director Dr. Jill Imgarten

Program Coordinator Dr. Kayla Dougherty

Under the leadership of Dr. Jill Imgarten as the Program Director, Dr. Kayla Dougherty as the Program Coordinator, and Dr. Chris Sebelski as Director of Residency Education at the SLU Program in Physical Therapy, we have an extraordinary 16-month curriculum with numerous opportunities for the licensed physical therapist to develop as an advanced clinician and an educator, produce and disseminate a scholarly product and grow as a provider to the area's underserved populations.

Their progress thus far has been outstanding.
