UK physical therapist recognized for excellent teaching

Angela Henning, UK alumna and physical therapist, was recently recognized by the Ohio-Kentucky Consortium of Physical Therapy Programs for exceptional leadership as an educator. Henning was selected as the recipient of this year’s Peter D. Mosher Educational Leadership Conference Scholarship. The award recognizes a physical therapist who is compassionate and has a vision for physical therapy clinical education. It is named in honor of the late Peter D. Mosher, former chairman of the consortium. 

Henning works in UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital's inpatient rehab department and serves as a clinical instructor of physical therapy.

“My personal vision is to continue to meet the individual learning needs of each student, even when that means modifying my teaching style,” Henning said. “My vision also includes incorporating our students into meaningful research and quality improvement projects. It all adds up to a win for our patients.” 

Since 2015, Henning has represented UK clinicians alongside Dr. Lynn English from the UK College of Health Sciences at the American Physical Therapy Association’s Educational Leadership Conference.  

“The knowledge I have gained by attending ELC has allowed me to work with our coordinator for clinical education, Tiffany Rowland, to assist the UK physical therapy program in meeting the challenges of this evolutionary time,” said Henning.  

Henning is also committed to advancing research in the field and has assisted in teaching first-year physical therapy students in both Lexington and Hazard. Additionally, Henning has developed lectures to introduce students to the role of physical therapists in acute care, specifically in cardiovascular and cardiothoracic transplant settings.
