Earn doctorates

Published December 27. 2013 05:00PM

Two local students were among those who recently graduated in the first class from the entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Misericordia University in Dallas. They are Emily Getz, Kunkletown, and Ashlee Zeigler, Weatherly.

The third annual winter commencement ceremony took place in the Anderson Sports and Health Center on campus.

The Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Misericordia University is a six-year professional program in which students receive a bachelor's degree and a doctor of physical therapy degree. Undergraduate students complete the requirements for their bachelor's degree during their first three years of study in programs like biology, business administration, health care management, psychology, sport management, and more.

Students accepted into the Misericordia program as first-year students are guaranteed to progress into the graduate program as long as they are in good academic standing.

Misericordia also accepts transfer students into the doctoral program. Academically qualified students with a bachelor's degree can complete the doctorate degree in three years.
