Clarkson University President Tony Collins has announced that Stacey L. Zeigler has been promoted from clinical assistant professor to clinical associate professor of physical therapy in the School of Arts & Sciences Department of Physical Therapy.
Zeigler has been a faculty member at Clarkson since 2003, a licensed physical therapist since 1994, and a board-certified Geriatric Clinical Specialist since 2002. She earned her doctorate in physical therapy in 2005 from Simmons College and has 16 years of clinical experience, mostly in formal healthcare leadership and administrative roles.
Zeigler’s teaching and scholarship has been focused on leadership, administration, management, and professionalism in physical therapy, as well as on clinical aspects of geriatric care. She has developed and taught two unique courses for Clarkson’s Doctorate of Physical Therapy program, resulting in five peer-reviewed abstracts and six state and national presentations on her innovations in integrating practice management skills with contemporary clinical practice.
She has also presented at both the state and national levels on professionalism in physical therapy, based on her pioneering research on this topic. She has been co-investigator of three clinical grants, one research, and one community grant during her career.
Zeigler has been a major contributor in the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) over the past 10 years in both appointed and elected service positions at the local, state, and national levels. Most recently this service has included appointments to APTA workgroups advising on matters such as federal health care reform legislation.
Zeigler has also served on the Clarkson University Institutional Review Board, as well as many department-specific and community committees. She has built connections between the University, the profession of physical therapy, and the local community through collaborative research and presentations with faculty from Clarkson’s Coulter School of Engineering, Center for Rehabilitation Engineering & Science Technology, and School of Business, as well as through continued clinical consultation as a physical therapist for Hospice of St. Lawrence Valley and Canton-Potsdam Hospital.
