NASHVILLE (TSU News Service) – For the second time, a Tennessee State University professor has been recognized by the Federation of State Board of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) for significant contribution to the Federation through volunteer work.
Dr. Ronald Barredo, Professor and Head of the Department of Physical Therapy, was presented with the FSBTP’s prestigious Outstanding Service Award for 2012.
The Federation noted Dr. Barredo’s volunteer work as a Continuing Competence Certification Reviewer, and as a member of the Physical Therapy Assistant Exam Development Committee.
“I am honored to have been selected by the FSBPT Board of Directors to receive this award,” Dr. Barredo said upon the announcement by the Federation, which develops and administers the National Physical Therapy Examination for physical therapists (PT) and physical therapist assistants (PTA) in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
According to Dr. Barredo, these high-stakes exams assess the basic entry-level competence for first-time licensure or registration as a PT or PTA within the 53 jurisdictions.
“My work with the FSBPT highlights my continuing commitment to and ongoing fulfillment of the University’s service mission—in this instance, service to the physical therapy profession at the national level, “ said Barredo, who also chairs the Board of Directors of the Foreign Credentialing Commission on Physical Therapy.
In 2010, Dr. Barredo received his first Outstanding Service Award from the FSBPT for heading the PTA Education Development Committee and for developing the Practice Review Tool, which is used to measure the continuing competence of physical therapy assistants.
