Graduate Outcomes & Current Class Profile

The Class of 2022 will enter the DPT program in September 2019. Selected from 539 applicants, the 95 members of the new class include 19 men and 76 women from 20 states and four countries. This accomplished group lists more than 25 undergraduate majors (including kinesiology, biology, dance and anthropology) and come from 57 undergraduate colleges and universities.

Of this group, 22 students applied via the Early Decision process facilitated by the Physical Therapist Centralized Application Service. Four students are completing dual-degree programs: One DPT/PhD student will earn a PhD in Engineering, and three DPT/MPH students will earn a Master of Public Health as well as the Doctor of Physical Therapy.

The Class of 2022 is a diverse group. There are a number of nontraditional students, including those who have taken time off between their undergraduate studies and graduate school. Some used the time to gain experience in PT settings, and some were working in other careers prior to pursing their DPT. 

Among the 95 enrollees, represented racial and ethnic groups include 21 percent Asian, 3 percent black or African-American, 3 percent Hispanic, 2 percent other and 71 percent white.
