Dr. Mohammad H. Hadadzadeh, Ph.D, MPT, BPT, PDCR


"Let's the beauty of what you love be what you do"- Rumi

Dr. Hadadzadeh is an Assistant Professor of Physical Therapy at Wheeling Jesuit University. He received a Bachelor degree of Physical Therapy from Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Iran (1999), and practiced as a physical therapist in Pour-Sina general hospital and private section until 2003. His interest in Hindu philosophy made him to move to India to pursue his graduate studies, while allowing him to have a chance for a closer exposure to understand the Hindu philosophy of life. He earned his Master in Cardio-pulmonary Physical Therapy from M.S. Ramaiah Medical College, Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (2006), and his PhD in Physical Therapy with specialization in Cardiac Rehabilitation from Manipal University (2011). He also earned a Professional Diploma in Clinical Research (PDCR). As grew up in a family of teachers, his teaching philosophy is based on that the best teacher is the one who teaches "How to learn, and become an independent life-long learner".

Prior to teaching at WJU, he had a multi-national work experience. He worked as PT in Iran & India with teaching responsibilities during his Master's & PhD. He served as an advisor in cardiac rehabilitation unit of Golsar Hospital, Iran, and organized their Cardiac Rehabilitation Protocol and Manual. He served as a team member of World Health Organization (WHO) funded ICF core sets Validation Project in India under Manipal University, and he was a team member for organizing Cardiac Rehabilitation Protocol and Patient Manual in Kasturba Hospital in India. Currently, he is an active member of many professional associations including American Heart Association (AHA), American Association of Cardiovascular & Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR), European Association of Cardiovascular Prevention & Rehabilitation (EACPR), European Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA), International Society of Exercise Immunology (ISEI), Iranian Medical Council, and Iranian Physiotherapy Association. He also serves as an editorial and review board of more than 15 international peer reviewed indexed journals.

Dr. Hadadzadeh has received 5 best paper awards for his research papers and speeches from different international conferences. In 2016, he received the most prestigious research award from American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) in Cardiovascular & Pulmonary section for one of his research papers. In 2011, he was selected as Poster Mentor in Canadian Cardiovascular Congress in Vancouver. He has also received 5 grants for some of his projects, and a patent for an innovation of a "Pain Relieving Instrument" in collaboration with Manipal University. He has been invited nationally and internationally to conduct various workshops in the field of cardiac rehabilitation and cardiovascular disease. He has couple of indexed peer reviewed publications, and presented papers in more than 17 different national and international conferences. As a life long learner, he has attended more than 30 CMEs and workshops in different fields of physical therapy and continues to update his knowledge in the field.

His areas of interest are cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation, exercise prescription in geriatric population, exercise physiology, exercise for health & fitness, music therapy, medical tourism, and since 2010 he collaboratively works with his wife; Dr Zahra Mohebbi, in Medical Tourism and its relevant potentials in the rehabilitation field. Playing guitar, writing poems and music are his passions too.
