As construction accelerates on Mary Baldwin’s satellite campus in Fishersville, the Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences faculty also continues to grow. The latest hire is clinical anatomist Keith Bishop, who brings a wealth of clinical experience in the areas of anatomy, neuroanatomy, pathophysiology, and cellular science to the emerging physical therapy program.
“We are so pleased to welcome Dr. Bishop,” said Linda Seestedt-Stanford, Mary Baldwin vice president of health sciences. “His clinical expertise in physical therapy coupled with his background in clinical anatomy will provide our students with exceptional instruction. Dr. Bishop’s energy, experience, and focus will be a tremendous asset to Murphy Deming as we build our new programs in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and physician assistant studies.”
Prior to joining the Murphy Deming team, Bishop served as an active duty Air Force officer for 21 years. After earning a master of science in athletic training from Brigham Young University and a certificate of physical therapy from Cleveland State University, he performed various clinical roles for the Air Force throughout the world, including at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. In 2002, Bishop began working as an assistant professor of biology at the U.S. Air Force Academy and he earned a PhD in anatomy from Virginia Commonwealth University. He loves to travel internationally, spend time with family, and eat ice cream.
