Doctor of Physical Therapy Program Diversity & Inclusion Policy

Methodist University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy Program (DPT) acknowledges that we all have implicit biases. Motivated individuals can learn to identify these biases and approach them with intentionality to overcome them over time. MUDPT expects students to engage in self-reflection and bring conscious awareness to biases as they relate to diversity and inclusion. This includes student interactions with classmates, patients, and colleagues in clinical education and in the future. MUDPT does not discriminate on the bases of race, ethnicity, religion, creed, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, or age. MUDPT has a no-tolerance policy for discrimination; students, staff, and faculty are expected to uphold and emulate this during clinical education and future practice as an extension of MUDPT.
