• Advising for Undergraduate Pre-Physical Therapy Students

    As a Gannon undergraduate student, you will be assigned two academic advisors: an advisor for your major and a pre-physical therapy advisor from the DPT faculty.  

    Carolyn Galleher, PT, DHS, Physical Therapy Undergraduate Coordinator, Beth Gustafson, PT, MSEd,  Physical Therapy Undergraduate Advisor will assist you during your scholastic endeavors at Gannon.  These pre-physical therapy advisors schedule individual and group advising meetings on a regular basis.  As an advisee, you are able to request a meeting with your major or pre-physical therapy advisor at any time during your enrollment at Gannon.

    Additionally, there are several established advising periods.  These include: 

    • Advising Day:  a day established by the University.  Classes are not held on Advising Day to allow youto meet with your advisors.  Pre-PT advisors are available each semester for assistance in course selection and registration.
    • Gannon DPT Program - Informational meeting: an opportunity to learn more about the graduate Doctor of Physical Therapy Program.  This meeting is held each November and is open to any student who is interested in the program.
    • Graduate admission meeting: the "nuts and bolts" of completing the Gannon graduate admission application; open to those ready to take this next step. This meeting is held each April for students applying in their last year of the undergraduate program.
