About the Program
Gannon’s physical therapy program is housed in the Morosky College of Health Professions and Sciences.
Gannon offers a wide range of allied health programs, and students have the opportunity to interact with students from nursing, occupational therapy, physician assistant, respiratory care and others.
One of the attributes that makes the Gannon DPT program unique among physical therapy educational programs is our addition to the curriculum of a five-credit Community Health Initiative course sequence.
This course sequence seeks to improve students’ skills in health promotion and develop their professional role as educators, advocates and consultants working with community organizations.
