HSC Professor Terry Crowe New Fulbright Scholar

Dr. Terry Crowe, tenured professor in the UNM School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics - Occupational Therapy Graduate Program, is the recipient of a Fulbright Specialists project in Global Health.

The Fulbright will support Crowe’s collaboration with scholars at Riga Stradins University in Latvia to train in pedagogy and curriculum development for developing occupational therapy programming. The visit will include lecturing, a seminar for members of the Association of Occupational Therapists of Latvia and a keynote address at the Riga Stradins University Scientific Conference. Crowe is the founding director of UNM’s Occupational Therapy Graduate Program.

The Fulbright Specialist Program promotes linkages between U.S. academics and their counterparts at overseas universities or institutions to engage in education focused programming. Specialists are selected on the basis of having a Ph.D., recognition of professional standing and accomplishments, and at least five years of university teaching experience or professional experience.

The Program was established in 1946 by U.S. Congressional authorization, and is administrated by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State. The Fulbright Program awards about 8,000 grants annually to students, scholars, visiting scholars, teachers, and professionals and operates in over 155 countries.
