Dr. Zane Brandt graduated from the SDSU Doctor of Physical Therapy program in 2017. During his studies, he was the Vice President of the Student Association and recognized with the Clinical Excellence Award for exceptional skills throughout the program’s academic and clinical components. After graduating, Dr. Brandt initially practiced in outpatient orthopedics with a specialty in Functional Manual Therapy. He now works at Sharp Memorial Hospital on the Acute Care Physical Therapy team. Recently, his role shifted to be a part of the COVID-19 team. Although working with these patients is challenging, Dr. Brandt feels that the ultimate reward is seeing patients go from barely moving in the ICU to walking out of the hospital as they reunite with their families. In addition, he is an instructor at the University of St. Augustine and enjoys sharing his physical therapy passion with his students.
