Therapeutic Associates Physical Therapy is thrilled to announce that three outstanding students have been awarded a total of $7,500 for the 2024 scholarship season.  

The James B. McKillip Scholarship was established to continue the growth of physical therapy by investing in individuals pursuing a career in the profession. This scholarship seeks to honor Jim McKillip’s legacy and entrepreneurial heart by supporting those who aspire to help others through their work as physical therapists and who are looking to make a difference in the profession. 

McKillip was one of the two founding members of the private practice section of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). Together with Robert Dicus, McKillip started Therapeutic Associates Physical Therapy in 1952, setting the standards of excellence that continue to drive our company to this day. He served as the organization’s first CEO, a role he held for nearly four decades from 1952 to 1991. 

Therapeutic Associates extends heartfelt congratulations to each of our 2024 scholarship recipients, chosen for their dedication to advancing the field of physical therapy.
