Dr. Nicole Robell earned a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and Sport Studies from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. She then went on to graduate school at New York Medical College, earning her Doctorate in Physical Therapy. Her Doctoral Thesis was in the Retention of Primitive Reflexes in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Dr. Robell joined the Exercise Science and Sport Studies Faculty in the Fall of 2012 as a Part Time Lecturer(PTL). In the Fall of 2015, after three years of teaching as a PTL, she transitioned to full time faculty as an Academic Instructor. Through the Exercise and Aging Course, Dr. Robell continues to implement community outreach to the senior citizen population by volunteering with her students at local events and senior centers. Dr. Robell will be working towards implementing the DPT joint program with Rutgers Newark and Camden with our undergraduate department.
Dr. Robell is also a practicing physical therapist at Saint Peter’s Sports Medicine Institute. Her specialty area is outpatient orthopedics with a manual based approach and concussions, but she also has worked with patients from geriatrics, pediatrics, acute care, and neurology. Her thirst for knowledge is forever growing, as she regularly participates in continuing education courses. As a clinician, besides treating she has mentored six Rutgers University Students for their internship in Exercise Science and Sport Studies and served as a clinical instructor for a Rutgers Newark Doctorate of Physical Therapy student. She also provides a pro bono program to help local high school athletes prevent ACL injuries. She feels that as a practicing clinician she offers a unique facet by providing the students with insight into the practical application of their coursework in the professional field.
