2018 Awards

About Our Recipients:


Dr. Eric Jankov earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Notre Dame College in 2007 and his degree as a Doctor of Physical Therapy from Cleveland State University in 2013.  In 2016 he completed a residency in Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy through the Institute of Therapeutic Sciences in Livonia, MI, and was recently accepted into a Fellowship program in Orthpaedic Manual Physical Therapy through the Institute of Athlete Regeneration.  He is also a Board-Certified Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist, Certified in Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy, Certified in Integrative Dry Needling, an ImPACT Trained Physical Therapist, and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.  He is currently working for University Hospitals St. John Medical Center as an outpatient physical therapist specializing in the treatment of patients with sports and orthopaedic conditions. 


Dr. Jankov was nominated by Cleveland State University who described: “Eric demonstrates a tremendous enthusiasm for working with students, especially when it comes to assisting them with development of their clinical reasoning abilities. He has a somewhat natural talent for using questioning to progress students through the learning process. I have also been impressed by the time he has devoted to providing specific feedback to students. After self-reflection, this CI has recognized some opportunities for improvement in his clinical teaching and has openly sought feedback from various sources and worked diligently to improve.  I believe he could benefit from the CCIP curriculum as a whole to put all of the pieces together.  His willingness to learn and grow not only as a clinician, but also as a CI, fits with the “spirit” of the award.”


Dr. Jeanette Lanoire obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry with an emphasis in Biochemistry from Kentucky Wesleyan College in Owensboro, KY. She served as a physical therapy technician throughout her undergraduate schooling, which she says lead her to this wonderful field of work. She graduated from Bellarmine University's physical therapy program in May of 2017. Dr. Lanoire is currently in the Norton and Bellarmine University Neurologic Residency for 2018 where she is serving as an adjunct professor for an Adult Neurology course, starting research within the Neurologic population, and rotating through specific clinics to advance her clinical skills. 


Dr. Lanoire was nominated for the award by Bellarmine University who described: “This new clinician is already headed down the path of deeper education of herself and our DPT students.  She stepped up during her first year as a clinician to fill in occasionally with students and provided "back-up" mentoring when needed at her first job.  She accepted a position with the Norton neurologic residency program which will increase her role and opportunities to mentor and teach students, providing great learning experiences.  She will also be undergoing further training on the mentor-relationship, improving her ability to receive feedback as well as provide to DPT students.  I believe the CI credentialing course will further her skills to better participate in student education.”
