Paul-Neil Czujko, PT, DPT, OCS, CHT
Director of Programmatic and Student Outcomes
Paul-Neil received a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Therapy from Stony Brook University in 1995. He began his career at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan where he gained acute care/medical surgical experience. His strong interest in orthopedics earned him a position of senior therapist in the out-patient department. He also spent a year in the hand clinic, which fueled an interest in hand therapy.
Having served as an in-service coordinator and leader of out-patient study groups, Paul-Neil has always had a strong desire to teach. He joined Stony Brook's Physical Therapy Program as an adjunct professor in 2004, and joined the faculty in 2010 as one of the Directors of Clinical Education.
Paul-Neil teaches Kinesiology, a first year foundational course, and Orthopedics I and II, second year courses in the Entry-level Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program. He also participates in Case Studies I and II, case-based learning experiences after the first and second semesters of didactic work.
Paul-Neil has extensive clinical experience providing physical therapy services in the private practice, out-patient setting. He is an Orthopaedic Certified Specialist through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, as well as a Certified Hand Therapist through the Hand Therapy Certification Commission. Areas of interest include kinesiology, manual physical therapy, and sports medicine. Being an avid runner, Paul-Neil’s current research area of interest is barefoot and minimalist running.
