The mission of the Physical Therapy Program is to graduate skilled and knowledgeable practitioners who are independent in their assessment of clients and collaborative with the health care team. Our program is designed to provide high school and college graduates with a thorough and efficient path to a Doctoral degree in Physical Therapy. The program consists of a three-year pre-professional phase, followed by a three-year professional phase leading to a Doctor of Physical Therapy and a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. Individuals who have a bachelor's degree and have met all the course pre-requisites may apply directly to the three-year professional phase.
Our faculty is comprised of expert clinicians and doctorally-prepared researchers who are committed to cultivating a positive learning environment, to providing quality learning experiences consistent with current and innovative professional practices, and to advancing the physical therapy profession through scholarly inquiry, clinical practice, and engaged leadership.
The DPT program balances academic study with clinical experience, placing a high degree of responsibility on students for assessing and making decisions about their own education. Academic faculty commit to integrating foundational science courses with clinical content and skills, clinical decision making skills, and functional outcomes. Clinical faculty assume primary responsibility for ensuring clinical competencies through hands-on learning experiences and the evaluation of the learner's performance. Learners assume responsibility for monitoring and communication their professional competencies according to their academic level, their acquisition of clinical learning experiences and skills, and their pursuit of individual goals.
