Annette Karim, PT, DPT, PhD, an associate professor at Azusa Pacific University, directs the PhD program in Rehabilitation and Movement Science and teaches in both the PhD and DPT programs. She is a board-certified orthopaedic clinical specialist, a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists, and a director in the Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy, American Physical Therapy Association. Her goal is to develop diverse leaders in equitable and inclusive clinical, research, and teaching environments, and by doing so, shape the future of physical therapy practice. As a researcher, her focus is driven by questions developed in dialogue with the dance community—she investigates movement patterns and motor control among dancers, with the goal of performance improvement and occupational sustainability. With over 25 years of dancing, teaching and directing, Annette welcomes all dancers to Evergreen, where she enjoys treating all patients and mentoring Manual Therapy Institute fellows.
