"Our PT program is proud of all the countless contributors to our Mount Union DPT story, especially those of our students and alumni,” said Dr. Sheryl Holt, associate professor and director of Mount Union’s DPT program. “We have a devoted and gifted team whose vision and work enable our program success, a team who are already aiming for the next horizon and all that we have yet to achieve. Meanwhile, we celebrate six years of graduates already making a difference in the lives of those they serve."

Mount Union is one of only six private institutions in Ohio to offer an accredited DPT Program through CAPTE and one of only four private institutions with an early assurance pathway available to its University’s undergraduate students.
