PTRS has created a scholarship fund to continue the legacy of Stephen M. Levine ('84).

Stephen M. Levine Memorial Scholarship Fund A Project of Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science

Stephen M. Levine, PT, DPT, MSHA, FAPTA, Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science Alumnus ('84), passed away on March 3, 2015, as a result of an automobile accident. Dr. Levine was loved and respected throughout the physical therapy profession. He was a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) for over 30 years, serving as a member of the Board of Directors for 11 years and also serving as Speaker of the House of Delegates, the highest policymaking body of the association.

Dr. Levine's passion for physical therapy began during his years at the University of Maryland School of Medicine's Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science. His dedication to the field was evident through his work with APTA and the House of Delegates. He was a leader of the profession and an intellectual force who would light up any room. His impact was felt by many. He truly left a mark on the physical therapy profession and had a vision for its future.

The Stephen M. Levine Memorial Scholarship Fund has been created to continue Dr. Levine's remarkable legacy and will be awarded to future PTRS students who embody his same passion, enthusiasm, and impressive work ethic.

For more information on Dr. Levine, please visit the APTA website.
