Doing the DAT | Jessica P.


“Every day in this program is an opportunity to get better. I do not want to be mediocre. I want to be a better clinician for my patients and an advocate for my profession.”

My best friend received her DAT degree from ATSU. The positive experience she had fed my desire to be a part of this amazing program. I feel ATSU has a very special group of individuals leading this program. They have challenged me to think outside the box and look deeper into my philosophies as a professional.

Since beginning the DAT, I have become excited about being a part of the research process and seeing the value of being actively involved in research and using patient reported outcomes in practice.

If you are thinking about applying to the DAT, do it! This has been one of the most positive experiences I have had professionally. Getting a routine in place while in the DAT is very important to success. I promise if this is something you really want to do, it is possible for you to do it.
