Reasons to Work and Live in San Marcos

Our San Marcos campus is centrally located with easy access to San Diego and Orange County. The year-round moderate climate is a motivator to get outside and enjoy San Marcos’ many parks and trails, community recreation programs, lakes, and beaches.

Indoor and outdoor spaces provide a positive learning environment for students and working environment for faculty members. Out classrooms are equipped with the most current technology, so courses survey more than the traditional lecture-style format.

Faculty who teach on the San Marcos campus will have access to the new Center for Innovative Clinical Practice (CICP) – a 7,000 square foot teaching laboratory with state-of-the-art medical tools. Through simulation education, students experience realistic situations in immersive settings, build confidence and critical thinking skills, and become better prepared for clinical careers. With a broad range of physical therapy and occupational therapy classes, this center includes a 16-bed patient ward, a dedicate area for occupational therapy education, two patient assessment rooms for acute care and clinical scenarios, a complex situation room, a 25-seat observation and debriefing room, and a daily living lab.

Meet some of our distinguished faculty

Here’s what faculty & staff have to say...

It's been a wonderful experience working as an instructor in the Occupational Therapy program at the Austin, TX campus. All of the other faculty members and program director have been very supportive - they're always supportive, always collaborative, always helping me develop my teaching skills. We're constantly looking at ways to provide great current evidence based practice and research in the curriculum which has been a great experience for our students.

Having been a physical therapist for over 20 years, it was an easy transition into teaching where I get to teach and show my passion for the career, watching students evolve from PTs and OTs in the classrom into practicing interns makes me feel good about the evolution and progression of our profession. I appreciate the University's core value of "student first" which is something that's always been important to me.
