Gannon University is a Catholic, Diocesan University with 90 years of rich tradition in academic excellence. This success has presented the opportunity to develop a second community-based DPT program at our Ruskin, Florida campus. The Gannon University, Ruskin DPT program offers an integrated 3 year curriculum plan that is organized around body systems.
The Ruskin DPT program boasts an experienced group of core faculty who will provide extensive hands-on experience for a small cohort of 30 DPT students each year. The curriculum provides an innovative interprofessional service learning component threaded through three years of course work ending in a capstone community day. These experiences have a strong emphasis on wellness and prevention.
Students will have 40 weeks of full time clinical experience strategically aligned with didactic coursework. The clinical experiences will be used to develop the necessary evidence based clinical decision making skills needed in the current health care system. Clinical education experiences will be available in most states in the US.
We are actively seeking qualified candidates for the Summer 2021 term.
The enrollment deposit will be deducted from the accepted student's first semester tuition statement.
