Physical Therapy: Searching the Literature

Use this guide to help support the research needs of the students, faculty and staff in the program.


All research to some extent relies on the results of previous research endeavors and scientific inquiry. The record of these results in biomedical research is best found in the published health sciences literature. A search of this literature, therefore, should be an integral part of any research undertaking.
