1981 graduate Cathy Horrigan agreed
that "the program needs to be

sity's physical therapy training
program isn't going to get any more
money it should be discontinued.

located in Detroit, and Oakland Univer-
sity, in Rochester. Oakland's program
is not yet accredited by the state, but
program director Judith Canfield said
she doesn't anticipate any problem in
earning accreditation.
Canfield said that it would be difficult
for a University of Michigan student to
transfer into Oakland's program.
