Faculty Bio
Susan Grieve
DPT
My association with Samuel Merritt University began as a PT student in 1996. After graduating from the MPT program in 1998 I began my clinic practice in the acute care setting moving between the out patient orthopedic and out patient neurological settings over a span of 12 years. I returned to SMU in 2005 as a part time instructor and was hired as a full time faculty member in the department in 2010. I am currently still involved in clinic practice in the acute care setting.

I have BA in Physical Education from The University of California at Davis - Go Aggies!
I have a Master of Science degree in Exercise Physiology from the University of Oregon - Go Ducks!
I completed my transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2009 from Temple University - Go Owls!
And lastly I am currently pursuing a PhD in Physical Therapy Science from Nova Southeastern University - Go Sharks!

I am a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist with the APTA and have an advanced certification in Vestibular Rehabilitation.
Teaching Interest
My research interests involve exploring ways we has physical therapists can help improve the self efficacy of exercise in those with chronic diseases and positively affect behavior change related to increased physical activity. My specific interests involve the chronic disease populations of those with different types of cancer and those with peripheral artery disease.
