Dr. Peggy Houglum is in the first generation of females in the profession of Athletic Training, and she has been an instructor and mentor for several of the profession's leaders. This fact is reflected in her 2002 induction into the National Athletic Trainers' Association Hall of Fame. She has had over thirty years of clinical experience in both athletic training and physical therapy; therefore, she contributes to two professional programs within the School at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Her past education includes receiving a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of Virginia, a Master of Science from Indiana State University (1975) and a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Minnesota (1971).

Prior to joining Duquesne University, she instructed the athletic training master's level course in Orthopedics, assisted with the master's research seminar, and mentored masters level education thesis projects at the University of Virginia while obtaining her doctoral degree. Dr. Houglum has published textbooks in the fields of therapeutic exercise and examination of injuries and has authored chapters in sports medicine textbooks.
