Lebanon Valley College’s Dr. Michael L. Fink, D.Sc., SCS, OCS, assistant professor of physical therapy, recently received the Alumni Emerging Leader Award from his alma mater, Thomas Jefferson University, in a ceremony on June 6.

The award recognizes a Jefferson School of Health Professions graduate who, early in his career, but at least five years following graduation, has made significant contributions in research, leadership in professional organizations, community service, or any other significant professional accomplishments.

At LVC, Fink teaches the following courses to DPT students: Differential Diagnosis, Grade V High Velocity Low Amplitude Thrust (HVLAT) Joint Mobilization, Pharmacology, Musculoskeletal Ultrasound and Gross Anatomy. In addition, Fink’s research interests are in injury prevention, manual therapy including HVLAT and differential diagnosis. He is instrumental in the success of LVC’s physical therapy students, who boast a 100 percent job placement rate and a 100 percent pass rate on the board licensure exam.

Fink, a former member of the United States Air Force, became the first Air Force physical therapist in history to be deployed with international special forces units into an overseas combat zone in 2003. He was elected to significant positions within the American Physical Therapy Association, including being a member of the Board of Directors for the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties in 2009 and was appointed as one of three members of the Committee of Content Experts in Sports Specialty Council, also in 2009.

Fink has also been a reviewer for four international physical therapy journals, two textbooks and the World Confederation of Physical Therapy abstracts since 2008. Dr. Fink also serves as a mentor and consultant to private practice orthopedic residency and fellowship programs in Central Pennsylvania as well as the military sports medicine residency program he graduated from and works as a part-time clinician in Harrisburg.
