UK PT Student Sarah Martin Receives APTA Scholarship

Published: Apr 11, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 11, 2014) − Sarah Martin, has been awarded the prestigious Mary McMillan Scholarship from the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). Martin, who is from Lexington, is a student in the University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences Doctor of Physical Therapy program. 

 

“I'm thankful to the APTA for the Mary McMillan Scholarship,” Martin said. “I am so appreciative of the UK Physical Therapy program for nominating me for the award. It is an excellent program, and I’m excited to be able to represent the University as a student member of the APTA and as an award recipient.”

 

The Mary McMillan Scholarship Award recognizes students who exhibit superior scholastic ability and potential for future professional contribution. Awards are made on a competitive basis. Recipients are selected on the basis of the following criteria: superior scholastic performance, past productivity, evidence of potential contribution to physical therapy, and service to the APTA.

 

Martin received her doctorate degree in anatomy and neurobiology from UK in 2008 and entered the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program in August 2011. She is expected to graduate with her DPT degree in August 2014 with honors. She received the UK College of Health Sciences Academic Excellence Scholarship this year, and she was selected for the Kentucky Physical Therapy Association All-Academic Team this year as well. She currently maintains a 3.9 GPA in her major.  

 

“Sarah’s competence has been demonstrated consistently and with high quality in her lab practical examinations and in her clinical rotations,” said Anne L. Harrison, director of professional studies for the Division of Physical Therapy. “She excels in her understanding of the didactic material, as well as in being able to translate head to hands in the psychomotor domain.” 

 

Martin is one of only five students nationally to receive this $5,000 scholarship. She will be recognized during the APTA’s NEXT Conference and Exposition, June 11 through 14 in Charlotte, N.C.
