My name is Aaron McCullough and I am the Vice-President of the University of Pittsburgh DPT Class of 2021. After growing up in the Pittsburgh area and also attending Pitt for my undergrad degree in Rehabilitation Science, I can say that I bleed blue and gold. I am very into exercising and you may not find a bigger sports fan in this city than myself. My main interest in physical therapy is with sports medicine and orthopedics. I have always been a nerd for musculoskeletal medicine and exercise science, which made physical therapy an easy choice for a career. Physical therapists not only have the ability to make a difference in a patient’s physical ailment, but we also are able to affect our patients socially and psychologically in a positive way, which makes this profession one of a kind. Every time I went to work as a rehab aide with UPMC Centers for Rehab Services it never felt like work; it always felt like I was making a difference in someone’s life and I can’t wait to do that for the rest of my career. I believe physical therapy is on the verge of becoming something greater than it already is and I can’t wait to use the skills I learn here at Pitt to help further this profession. Hail to Pitt!
