Hands-on learning for physical therapists

October 20, 2010 —

The post-professional doctor of physical therapy (PPDPT) program at DMU can be completed entirely online, making it a great option for practicing physical therapists who want to advance their career.

Some students come to campus for a weekend to take a manual therapy class dealing with the physiological, neurological and psychological aspects of manual therapy. While students can qualify for an exemption of this course, it is a great opportunity for them to see the campus and meet their fellow classmates and professors.

Gwen Garrido, a 2010 grad of the PPDPT program, from Bellaire, TX, enjoyed her recent manual therapy course at DMU. “This is the highlight of the program for me. I had the chance to see my online classmates face-to- face, especially those who post to the discussion board a lot. It is also the time to meet with the exceptional teachers who are imparting tremendous knowledge to the students based on their evidence-based experience. I enjoyed the actual practice in the laboratory and the collaboration with peers on different manual therapy techniques.”
