My name is Ryan Andersen and I am the Fundraising Chair of the University of Pittsburgh DPT Class of 2022. I am originally from Syosset, New York. I attended Pitt for my undergraduate studies, receiving a degree in Rehabilitation Science and a certificate in Pathokinesiology. My undergraduate education at Pitt gave me a great foundation to build upon as I continue my education, and helped me figure out that I truly loved Physical Therapy. It also prepared me for exposure to clinical settings early on, allowing me to begin graduate school with a good amount of background knowledge to continue building upon in the classroom and in my clinical placements. My main interest in Physical Therapy lies in sports medicine and orthopedics, where I hope to one day work with a professional sports team. In my free time I enjoy exercising outside, exploring the city, watching sports, and serving as a graduate assistant for my college ultimate frisbee team. I look forward to serving as Fundraising Chair and coordinating events that help the students, faculty, and all those associated with Pitt Physical Therapy. H2P!
