Carey Physical Therapy Program to Host Information Session

Potential applicants to the William Carey University Doctor of Physical Therapy program are invited to attend an information session from 9 until 11 a.m. on December 14 in the Kresge Room of the Thomas Building on the Hattiesburg campus.
 
During the session, faculty members will discuss program curriculum, prerequisites, admission requirements and accreditation. The program, the second of its kind in Mississippi, will admit its first class of 30 students in fall 2016. Students with the appropriate bachelor’s degree will be able to complete the classroom and clinical education courses in three years.
 
The program was approved by the Carey Board of Trustees in September 2014 to help fill the need for more physical therapists in Mississippi. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has noted that the demand for physical therapists will grow 36 percent from 2012 to 2022 because of the aging baby boomer population.
 
The event is free of charge, but pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, call (601) 318-6584 or visit www.wmcarey.edu/schools/physical-therapy.
