About

Brandi Hosford, PT, DPT received her formal education at a private Iowa university in the field of exercise science and physical therapy via an accelerated program, that included both her bachelors and doctorate level education. After graduation from her DPT program in 2019, she gained more advanced clinical skills/experience while working at Loyola University Medical Center in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. There her clinical focuses were vestibular/concussion rehabilitation, orthopedics, return to sport, and various neurological rehabilitation including Parkinson's Disease. Now, as a member of the UIC community, Brandi is excited to embark on a new educational and clinical journey with the University of Illinois at Chicago Orthopedic Residency program. She hopes to gain advanced clinical insight and skills in the area of orthopedics, as well as advance in her ability to provide proficient doctorate level education to the current DPT students. Post residency, Brandi hopes to obtain an orthopedic clinical specialty and continue her career in both clinical and educational settings.
