Dr. Eric Coley Receives Award and a New Title

Posted by Monica Hoel
Dr. Coley has received recognition for his hard work just before taking over as chair of the Physical Therapy program at the E&H School of Health Sciences.

The American Physical Therapy Association Academy of Education has a program they call “Adopt-A-Doc.” The program seeks to increase the number of physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who achieve their doctoral degrees. The organization provides financial support to Academy members who are in the dissertation phase of their post-professional doctoral programs.

They never offer more than 3 awards annually, so it is quite an honor that Emory & Henry alumnus, Eric Coley just received one of those awards. Eric finished his undergraduate degree at Emory & Henry in 2004. He earned a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Duke University, and most recently completed his Doctor of Education in Higher Education Administration from the University of Florida. Dr. Coley returned to Emory & Henry in 2012 as a founding faculty member of the School of Health Science’s Doctor of Physical Therapy Program.

In additional news, it was recently announced that after an open national search Dr. Coley was named the incumbent Chair of the Physical Therapy Program at the Emory & Henry School of Health Sciences in preparation for the retirement of the current Chair, Dr. Jean Irion.

Ironically, Dr. Jean Irion was honored with an “Adopt-a-Doc” award during her student days. And so was Rose Pignataro, who serves as Assistant Chair and an Associate Professor in the E&H Physical Therapy Program.

All these “docs” are now happily established as leaders of the E&H School of Health Sciences in Marion.

  • Dr. Eric Coley, E&H Class of 2004.
