The University of Delaware’s Department of Physical Therapy recently honored its newest class of Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) graduates at winter commencement. The 51 students in the Class of 2018 are the 15th class to graduate from the program, which is ranked number 1 in the country by US News & World Report.
A hallmark of the Class of 2018 was a spirit of gratitude for others. In April 2018, the students held the first anatomical donor memorial ceremony to pay tribute to the lives of those who donated their bodies to the College of Health Sciences. The event gave students the opportunity to thank the donors’ family members and to express the impact the gift made on their education. Plans for a memorial labyrinth, a hardscape garden honoring all anatomical donors, were unveiled at the ceremony.
