Pamela Bosch, PT, DPT, PhD
Phoenix Biomedical Campus
Dr. Bosch is a neurorehabilitation and pediatric physical
therapist with over thirty years of experience in the profession. Her research interests are focused on the
effectiveness of intensive neurorehabilitation, determining optimal aerobic
training intensity and implementing appropriate aerobic training interventions
for people with impaired walking from a stroke. Dr. Bosch is interested in the
ability of these interventions to reduce comorbidities, improve function, and
enhance quality of life for individuals living with the effects of stroke.
