First Doctor of Physical Therapy Graduates Among Large Group at Winter Commencement

BUIES CREEK — The 36 members of the charter class of Campbell’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program made history Saturday when they walked the stage at the University’s annual winter commencement ceremony, held inside a packed John W. Pope Jr. Convocation Center.


They were among the 409 total graduates — plus another 129 from the summer — to earn degrees Saturday, five years after Campbell first announced the program to add breadth to the school’s health science degree offerings and help meet anticipated shortages in the state’s and region’s health care industry.
