My name is Derek Dalton.  I will graduate in May with my Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree from West Virginia University.  I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology (WVU) as well.

 While a Physical Therapy student, I have been very active at both the state and national level.  I’m a current member of the APTA and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists (AAOMPT).

 My interests include legislative issues surrounding physical therapy, orthopaedic manual physical therapy, and the development of clinical prediction rules and classification systems that truly guide treatment.
