Jody Ann Feld

Assistant Professor in Orthopaedic Surgery

Dr. Feld is physical therapist and clinical researcher with a specialization in adult neurological rehabilitation. She joined the faculty in 2011. Dr. Feld's expertise is used across the curriculum in foundational and advanced practice courses in area of neurological rehabilitation and gait. Dr. Feld's research focuses on the investigation of the complexity and interdependence of the multiple systems underlying gait and cognitive performance, situational awareness, physical activity, falls, and participation in the community post stroke and in aging populations. Specifically, her research focuses on improving clinical decision making for multidisciplinary healthcare providers targeting personalized rehabilitation at a critical time in recovery post stroke (early after discharge) when stroke survivors are adapting to life at home with disability. In addition, Dr. Feld has an interest in developing collaborative learning experience for students and clinicians in healthcare professions with an emphasis on the concept of disability in healthcare and benefits of adaptive sports for persons with disabilities.
