Within the week, 12 Central Michigan University physical therapy doctoral students will make the 425-mile trek from Mt. Pleasant to Michigan Technological University’s campus in Houghton. They’ll help to fill a critical need for additional physical therapists in the Upper Peninsula.
“Students who are in Houghton will be able to receive instruction concurrently with classmates in their cohort in Mt. Pleasant,” Loubert said. “The labs are connected together with the same technology, which will allow all 60 students to take classes simultaneously on both campuses.”
