Graduate Entry - Class of 2020

Throughout my time in the DPT program. the faculty and staff were always cheering me on. Their support kept me motivated towards achieving the ultimate goal of becoming a physical therapist. The professors have so much knowledge and expertise, but still care about you as an individual. Your classmates will also be your biggest support system!
