2022-Joe Farrell

Joe Farrell is the first recipient of the Faculty Emeritus Award presented in 2022.
Joseph P. Farrell, PT, M App Sc, DPT, FAAOMPT, FAPTA has a long history in the education and promotion of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy and in our program. He retired in 2018 as a clinician and Senior Clinical Fellowship Faculty member of the Kaiser Northern California Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy Fellowship Program, where he had taught in the Fellowship program since 1984.
Joe is a founding fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists (AAOMPT) and the AAOMPT’s first President. He helped establish the first description of specialty practice and standards for manual therapy education in the USA and was instrumental in establishing the AAOMPT as a representative body for the USA as a full member country in the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapists. His expertise and experience in communication, mentorship, clinical reasoning, orthopaedic manual physical therapy, and political advocacy is significant and was highlighted in 2015, when he earned the Catherine Worthington Fellow status, the highest member honor bestowed by the APTA, and delivered the 2015 AAOMPT Distinguished Lecture.
We would like to thank Joe for his dedication and contributions to our Fellowship program over the years. As we move forward in the re-development of our program, we look forward to continuing to build on the legacy that Joe helped establish as a leader in our profession and Orthopaedic Manual Therapy.
