MYTH #10: Students at UD rarely engage with the faculty. Instead, most instruction is provided by teaching assistants.
TRUTH: At UDPT, students receive direct instruction from world renowned physical therapist researchers and clinicians.

We believe the instructional and future networking opportunities provided by these interactions is of tremendous benefit to our students.
