James Crick, PT, DPT
James Crick is a physical therapist practicing in the acute care setting at the Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University and is a current part-time PhD student in the school of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. He received his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Bellarmine University in 2015 where he was the president of his cohort and served as a research associate with members of the DPT faculty. His clinical interests include promoting early and appropriate physical therapy in critically ill patients, cardiopulmonary physical therapy, and improving systemic processes involving physical therapists in the hospital setting. Since graduating with his DPT, James has practiced primarily in the acute care setting, has been involved in creating critical care mobility guidelines, assists as a manuscript reviewer, and developed a critical care rehabilitation team within his hospital.
He began pursuits of a PhD under the mentorship of Dr. Katie Quatman-Yates in 2020 with a focus on implementation science and quality improvement in healthcare systems. His career aspirations include implementation research in healthcare generally and physical therapy specifically while also sharing his passion for acute care and cardiopulmonary physical therapy with the next generation of physical therapists.
James is married to his wife, Samantha, and they live in Westerville, OH with their two children. He enjoys spending time with his family, remaining active in his church, reading, and exercising.
