The Canisius College Department of Kinesiology in the School of Education and Human Services has entered into a formal articulation agreement with the School of Health Professions at D’Youville University for many of their allied health care majors. Students pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Sports and Exercise Health Care at Canisius who meet specific program requirements are guaranteed admission to the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT), Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) and Master’s in Occupational Therapy (OT MS) programs at D’Youville University. This agreement allows students the opportunity to pre-plan their undergraduate and graduate career paths to facilitate their transfer to graduate allied health care studies.
“Job growth in the allied health care professions is expected to grow faster than average in the next ten years” said Mike Dolan MS, ATC, CSCS, professor and co-director of the Sports and Exercise Health Care program at Canisius. “We are excited to partner with D’Youville University to provide our students a clear and accessible path to graduate work in physical therapy, chiropractic care, and occupational therapy.”
The Sports & Exercise Health Care program prepares students to apply research and clinical practice to optimize the health of people from all walks of life. Students take coursework in human anatomy and physiology, with a focus on human motion, injury recognition, evaluation, care and rehabilitation techniques. Undergraduates in this field participate in over 500 hours of clinical experience and make connections in a variety of sports medicine-related sectors.
“We are delighted to collaborate with Canisius College to offer meaningful, seamless, and cost-efficient pathways for undergraduate students seeking advanced healthcare professions training in graduate programs at D’Youville University” said Dr. Lisa Rafalson, PhD, Dean of the School of Health Professions at D’Youville University.
