Physical Therapy Interactive Information Sessions
The Department of Physical Therapy offers interactive Information Sessions multiple times per year. These half-day events include a presentation by program faculty, tours of the campus facilities, Q&A sessions with current DPT students, and a chance to get more information from various student services offices, including the Disability Resource Center, Veterans Services, and Academic Support Services, among others. Most importantly, learn more about the admission process and what it takes to be a competitive applicant to Samuel Merritt University's Doctor of Physical Therapy program. All sessions will take place on the Oakland Campus.
When considering applications, the DPT program gives strong preference to applicants who have shown demonstrated interest in Samuel Merritt University by attending an Interactive Information Session. Applicants who are considering Samuel Merritt University are highly encouraged to attend one of the following program dates.
Saturday, September 23 - Fall Preview Day
Can't make it to campus for an information session? Then check us out during one of our webinars. During these online sessions, we'll cover the basic program information and dive into the admission requirements and application process. These 60-90 minute sessions are a great way to get your questions about the program and admission answered from the comfort of your own home (or dorm room!).
