COAST: Creating Opportunity & Academic Success for Tomorrow’s Therapists

A Community of Passionate Educators and Learners

Founded in 2017, COAST (Creating Opportunity & Academic Success for Tomorrow’s Therapists) is an initiative created by several students and faculty members at the Medical University of South Carolina. Our aim is to:

  1. Promote awareness of the physical therapy profession to underrepresented minority students,
  2. Assist students in steps necessary for admission into a graduate physical therapy program, and
  3. Provide mentoring and career exploration opportunities for students interested in physical therapy.
