Andrew Shipp DPT ’18 earned a doctoral degree in physical therapy from MBU’s Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences in 2018 and has since become the practicing director of an outpatient physical therapy clinic in Tysons Corner, Virginia.

Shipp works to help patients of all ages and ability levels rehabilitate from different injuries, surgeries, diagnoses, and more.

“What I love most about my career is the personal relationships I build with my patients and using exercise as my medicine for them to achieve their goals and increase their quality of life,” he said.

Becoming a physical therapist was Shipp’s dream throughout his education, and MBU’S Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences gave him opportunities to hold leadership roles and to connect with professors and clinical healthcare professionals who share his passion for PT.

“The rigor of the coursework also prepared me to successfully complete an orthopedic clinical specialist residency program,” he said. “Not to mention some of my best friends were made during my time there.”
