Physical Therapy Welcomes New Faculty

Dr. Charles Marshall grew up in Eastern Kentucky, so when the opportunity arose for him to return to his roots and educate future health care professionals in Hazard, he did not hesitate. 

“I love being with people,” said Marshall.  “I also love the basic sciences.  Teaching allows me to combine those two attributes.”

A native of Beattyville Ky., Marshall was recently hired as a Physical Therapy faculty member for the UK College of Health Sciences.  He will be teaching at the Center for Excellence in Rural Health located in Hazard, Ky. 

Dr. Marshall graduated from Alice Lloyd College, with a B.S. Biology in 1999.  Marshall received his M.S. in Anatomical Sciences & Neurobiology from the University of Louisville in 2005 and in 2006, he completed his Ph.D. in Anatomical Sciences & Neurobiology,

Marshall is a faculty member of the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences and teaches human gross anatomy, human physiology, histology and neuroanatomy for the College of Health Sciences.

Marshall and his wife, Kassi, moved to Hazard in December 2008.  She is an Internal Medicine Physician.  The couple has been married for 10 years and have two children. 

When Marshall is not working he enjoys doing activities with his family.  Marshall also plays the mandolin and is a fan of bluegrass music, University of Louisville athletics and Ford Mustangs.
