JAG announces fund to help Seton Hall grad students at School of Health and Medical Science

JAG-ONE Physical Therapy announced Wednesday an expansion of its longstanding partnership with Seton Hall University through the creation of the JAG-ONE Physical Therapy Fund for Interprofessional Health Sciences.

The JAG-ONE Physical Therapy Fund for Interprofessional Health Sciences will provide funding to graduate students at the School of Health and Medical Sciences entering their final year of their respective graduate program. Preference will be given to those in the physical therapy, occupational therapy and athletic training programs.

The scholarship also will include opportunities to participate in interprofessional clinical experience, research, shadowing opportunities and other enriching experiences.

JAG-ONE Physical Therapy has been the official partner for Seton Hall Athletics for many years. This partnership expands the relationship into Seton Hall’s academic strategy.

Dr. Brian Shulman, dean of the School of Health and Medical Sciences, said he was thrilled to see the partnership grow.

“The opportunity to expand our relationship with JAG-ONE Physical Therapy is an extremely rewarding one, as it provides deserving students with access to funds toward their education,” he said. “For 15 years, JAG-ONE has acted as a clinical partner with the School of Health and Medical Sciences, providing hands-on clinical experiences for our students and future health care practitioners.

“I look forward to our continued partnership with JAG-ONE in providing exemplary clinical education in PT, OT and AT,” he said.

JAG-ONE Physical Therapy is the leading provider of outpatient orthopedic physical and occupational therapy services in the tri-state area. CEO John Gallucci said he is glad the relationship with Seton Hall now encompasses both athletics and academics.

“This fund will prove to be extremely beneficial for the students of the SHMS programs,” he said. “Having gone through AT and PT school myself, I know the financial burden it takes, and I am so proud to be able to aid these students on the path to such an enriching set of careers.”
