Beginning in Fall 2010, UNTHSC will offer a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the School of Health Professions. Dr. Clayton Holmes, a native of Nixon, Texas, has been named chair of the new Department of Physical Therapy. He will help develop the new program into one of the country’s leading physical therapy schools and the choice of incoming physical therapy students. The program will meld cutting-edge physical therapy education with manipulative medicine through the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine and UNTHSC's Physical Medicine Institute.

Dr. Holmes is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.
