Eryn Milian PhD, PT, DPT
Originally, from Connecticut, I have lived in Miami for the past 15 years. I received a B.S. in chemistry and environmental science from William Smith College in 2003 after which I pursued by DPT from the University of Miami. I graduated from UM in 2007 and started working as a clinician full time. My area of clinical expertise is in orthopedics and sport physical therapy. In 2008, I started my PhD, also with the University of Miami, which I completed in 2015. My doctoral work focused on anatomical sciences and outcome measures with the culmination of my dissertation titled Outcomes in Patients with Degenerative vs. Non-degenerative Meniscus Tears.
Since joining the faculty at the University of Miami, Department of Physical Therapy (2013) as a full-time Assistant Professor my teaching responsibilities have grown and I am currently the course master for Gross Anatomy and Neuroscience I (Neuroanatomy). Additional course work includes Pelvic Anatomy and instruction within the orthopedic, sport, and neuroscience residency programs.
My research interests focus around knee injury and include topics on the development of reliable and valid measures of assessing ACL risk is adolescent athletes, using musculoskeletal ultrasound to improve clinical assessments of the knee, assessing functional phenotypes in individuals with knee OA, and determining the relationship between hip asymmetry and injury.
