University of Memphis Lambuth in Jackson, Tenn. will have one of the largest graduate programs in the University of Memphis system. The program is for students pursuing a doctorate degree in physical therapy.

“We anticipate accepting 40 students per cohort, so it’s 40 students per year for this program,” says program director Jacque Bradford, PhD. "The emphasis or the focus of this program is to develop students to be leaders in providing rural health care to those patient populations who tend to be underserved. The beautiful thing about this campus is it has that small-town ‘homey’ feel.”

The Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Lambuth will launch in the fall of 2026.

Dear Campus Community,

The University of Memphis is deeply saddened by the passing of Dr. Richard L. Irwin, our Executive Dean for UofM Global, the College of Professional & Liberal Studies and the Center for Regional Economic Enrichment.

Since arriving here in 1994, Dr. Irwin remained one of the most innovative and impactful leaders at our University during the past three decades. From founding the Sport Management program to overseeing Tennessee’s top-ranked online program to securing the largest grant in UofM history, he continually advanced and improved our institution.

In addition to his impressive and numerous professional accomplishments, Dr. Irwin was also invaluable to our campus as a mentor, colleague and friend to many faculty, staff, students and community partners.

The UofM is eternally better thanks to Dr. Irwin’s commitment, leadership and service. Our thoughts are with his family.

Bill Hardgrave
UofM President
