Our doctor of physical therapy (DPT) program's mission is based on what we affectionately call "The 3 Cs".
You will graduate as a competent physical therapist who demonstrates exemplary character while assuming the responsibilities of citizenship.
Clinical internships with over 30 regional hospitals and medical centers; hospital-based internships in pediatric vestibular research and in shoulder disorder research (Mayo, Nemours, and Brooks Rehab); post-professional residencies in orthopedic and neurological physical therapy; contracts with many outpatient private practices.
You graduate well-prepared to pass the National Physical Therapy Exam and launch your professional practice.
The admission deadline for both the Graduate School AND the DPT Program is December 2, 2019. Prerequisites: Incomplete applications with outstanding requirements, or those post-marked after the posted deadline, are subject to cancellation.
Once an application has been cancelled, the applicant will be required to apply for the next available term, or as a graduate non-degree seeking applicant (limitations apply).
Students will engage in reflective practice through sound clinical decision making, critical self-assessment necessary for lifelong learning and will master entry-level professional clinical skills.
In addition to the academic coursework, students will participate in full-time clinical internships during the second and third years of the program.
