On Monday, May 11, the Emory DPT Class of 2009 participated in commencement ceremonies to celebrate the beginning of their professional careers as physical therapists.
The day began with the All-Schools Ceremony where Vicente Fox Quesada, former President of Mexico, was the commencement speaker. Next, they participated in the Academic Health Professions Diploma Ceremony where John Banja, PhD, Associate Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine and the Assistant Director of the Program in Health Sciences and Ethics at Emory University, was the commencement speaker. Following the ceremonies, graduates and their families gathered at a reception held in the Woodruff Heath Sciences Center Administrative Building (WHSCAB).
The DPT program’s first dual-degree student, Nate Thomas, received both DPT and MBA diplomas at the Diploma Ceremony.
Congratulations to the Emory DPT Class of 2009!
