Irene De Masi, P.T., D.P.T
Assistant Professor and Director of Clinical Education
My areas of interest are Professional Development, Experiential Learning and Community -Based Research initiatives
I joined the faculty as the Director of Clinical Education and Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at Seton Hall University in 2004. Prior to this appointment I served in various clinical specialty and leadership positions, pioneering new programs and services across the rehabilitation continuum at Kessler Rehabilitation Corporation. These diverse positions of increasing accountability and responsibility admirably prepared me to communicate lessons learned from the field to the classroom environment.
With a strong focus on clinical education and facilitation of clinical educational partnerships with facilities dedicated to excellence, I have been an APTA Credentialed Clinical Trainer since 2006.
My research interests are in clinical education, professional development, experiential learning and pediatrics.
