First-Year Signing Off


Hang on! You can do it! Almost there! In just five days, we’ll all be able to celebrate having successfully completed our first-year of DPT schooling at the University of Pittsburgh! Thank you, everyone, for making it an incredible experience. Throughout, we were challenged and rewarded and have learned so much in the process. If I thought we had more time to read this (and more time to write it) then this wouldn’t be so brief. Thanks again to the professors, teaching assistants, upper classmen, administrative staff, clinical instructors and fellow classmates for helping the Class of 2014; we couldn’t have done it without all of you!
