Britta Gurgel, PT, D.P.T., PCS (she/her)


Britta’s clinical focus is in the care of children, along with their caregivers, who have chronic health conditions or difficulties with movement. Britta has gained a variety of experiences in her pediatric physical therapy career thus far, which includes school-based therapy, hospital-based acute and outpatient services, and the completion of a pediatric physical therapy residency here at OHSU. Witnessing the joy of children when learning a new way to interact with their world is the best part of her work and the driving force in providing meaningful, family-centered care based on solid clinical foundations. Locally, she is involved in various community groups focusing on adaptive mobility and play for children, and, nationally, is also a member of the Pediatric and Research sections of the American Physical Therapy Association.

A transplant from the Midwest, Britta enjoys all of the outdoors that Oregon has to offer, from the mountains to the coast. She also spends her time running, reading, cooking, and traveling.
