Timothy James McArthur, PT, DPT, ATC (SLU SSM Health Physical Therapy Orthopedic Residency Graduate)

Dr. McArthur is a practicing physical therapist in Colorado Springs, CO. He earned his DPT degree from Sacred Heart University in Connecticut.

Here are only some of the many highlights of connecting with Dr. McArthur about his residency experience and practice as a physical therapist…

on the practice of physical therapy: The "way you practice and how you interact/care for patients" is what defines you as a physical therapist."

...and lessons learned from the residency. On the importance of self-reflection, it "helps you improve your overall clinical judgement to ensure patients are being progressed appropriately during the course of their plan of care."

Dr. McArthur's advice to those considering residency education: "Everyone's experience with residency is different and definitely varies greatly across the board. I would say having a resource of mentors/staff that would be flexible in their curriculum to fit your learning style is essential in your success of residency."
