Physical Therapy Residency Program Welcomes New Cohort

October 13, 2023
New 2024 PT Residents

The Baylor Scott & White-Baylor University Orthopedic Residency program is pleased to announce the members of its third cohort of residents—Jonathan Kim and Emily Lapes. Both will begin the program in February 2024.

Originally from Los Angeles, Jonathan Kim received his undergraduate degree in Economics. After graduation, he worked as an account manager for four years before returning to school to pursue a career in physical therapy. He will graduate from Baylor's Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program in December 2023. He says:

"Baylor's DPT program has influenced me in many ways—one of those was introducing me to residency programs. Now, I have the exciting opportunity to embark on my journey to become an orthopedic clinical specialist with the Baylor Orthopedic Residency!"

Emily Lapes is also a soon-to-be graduate of the Baylor DPT program. She is a Waco native who completed her undergraduate degree at Baylor as well.  She says:

"Having now been a part of the Baylor DPT program, it is safe to say Baylor is family and Waco is home. I am eager to continue to develop my knowledge and skills through the Baylor Scott and White-Baylor Orthopedic Residency Program. This program creates an opportunity to grow in so many ways that will allow me to be more impactful to the community. Through this residency I am so excited to continue to serve and care for the Waco community I call home."

Congratulations, Jonathan and Emily, and welcome to the Baylor Scott & White-Baylor University Orthopedic Residency program!
