Dr. Sarah Rose Glick is a physical therapist from Libertyville, Illinois who works at the University of Miami. She completed her Bachelor of Science Degree with a pre-medicine concentration, Biology Major, Spanish and Chemistry double minor at Denison University in Ohio in 2010. Sarah earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Miami in 2017. She then accepted a job with the University of Miami in the outpatient orthopedic setting and pain clinic. Sarah went on to complete her Sports Residency with the University of Miami in 2019.
Sarah decided early in life to dedicate her focus to the medical field which included volunteering in pro-bono clinics in Chicago, medical research, and work in the field of child abuse. She decided to pursue physical therapy after her years of experience with Special Olympics sports and work with children with Cerebral Palsy. While in physical therapy school, Sarah helped lead an adaptive sailing course with Shake-A-Leg Miami and volunteered time in both, University of Miami’s pro-bono physical therapy clinic and the university’s Department of Community Service public health fair. During her time in residency, she connected with the Miami VA and fell in love with adaptive sports, accompanying the athletes to the National Veteran’s Wheelchair Games in Louisville, Kentucky. Sarah also has had the opportunity to be involved with the UM DPT program as a guest lecturer, faculty lab instructor and clinical instructor. Sarah has presented multiple research projects at the American Physical Therapy Association’s Combined Sections Meeting, the largest physical therapy conference in the country. She has also presented her research titled, “A Multi-disciplined Approach in the Healing of a Stress Fracture in a Female Endurance Athlete” at the annual University of Miami Research Symposium in 2019.
When not working, Sarah can be found enjoying the outdoors. She is an avid runner and triathlete. In the past, she has led back country mountain biking, backpacking and rock-climbing trips. Most importantly, Sarah owes her success to the love, support and guidance of her family. They have taught Sarah the meaning of unconditional love and have helped her through many of her own health hurdles. Sarah’s mother leads her own medical practice with the quote from the Talmud, “to save one life is to save the world”, and is one that Sarah also strives to embody in her own practice.
