    Betty Smoot, PT, DPTSc, MAS, is Associate Professor at UCSF with appointments in the Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science and the Department of Anatomy. She is a licensed physical therapist with certifications in lymphedema therapy and in exercise training for people with cancer. Dr. Smoot earned her entry-level Physical Therapy degree in 1983, her Doctorate in Physical Therapy Science in 2009, and her Masters of Advanced Studies in Clinical Research in 2015, from UCSF.

    Dr. Smoot's research encompasses two related areas: 1) The effects of breast cancer treatment on physical function and 2) the assessment and treatment of breast cancer-related lymphedema. Dr. Smoot received a NIH/UCSF K12 Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH) research award and a Foundation for Physical Therapy Magistro Family Foundation Research Grant to study breast cancer-related lymphedema.

    Dr. Smoot is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association, American Association of Anatomists, American College of Sports Medicine, International Association of Lymphologists, and the National Lymphedema Network. Dr. Smoot is on the Medical Advisory Board for Sunflower Wellness, a nonprofit San Francisco based corporation that provides exercise program design, exercise classes, and resources to people living with cancer, and training for fitness professionals. Dr. Smoot and colleague Dr. Jeannette Lee teach "Strength After Breast Cancer," an exercise series for women at risk for or with breast cancer-related lymphedema and have created several online patient resources for the UCSF Lymphedema Education and Prevention Program. Dr. Smoot teaches Human Anatomy to Physical Therapy and Medical Students, and Research Design and Evidence Based Practice to Physical Therapy students in the doctoral program.
