Description

The curriculum review for the Doctor of Physical Therapy program is a long-standing annual curriculum review process in which core and adjunct faculty, clinical partners, student representatives and alumni come together to evaluate the program. This session will give an overview of the DPT curriculum review process; participants will be inspired by the review process, not dread it, have the opportunity to ask questions, and discuss how this process might apply to their discipline.
