Postprofessional Programs

We offer you two postprofessional physical therapy degrees and continuing education courses to meet your particular career goals .  

 

Transitional DPT (t-DPT) 

The transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy (t-DPT) is designed to provide advanced learning for practicing physical therapists. The tDPT is offered in two formats: distance and on-campus. 

 

Doctor of Science in Physical Therapy (DScPT)

The Doctor of Science in Physical Therapy (DScPT) degree represents the highest clinical specialty doctorate in the world and is recognized as an advanced academic doctoral degree for bachelors, masters, and doctoral trained physical therapists. You choose the concentration that meets your professional needs: Orthopaedic Manual Therapy or Women's Health.  New concentrations are in development.

 

Postprofessional programs (such as our DScPT and tDPT) are not accredited by CAPTE, as it currently accredits only qualified entry-level DPT programs. The transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at Andrews University does not satisfy all educational prerequisites for professional licensure as a physical therapist in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands. 

 

Continuing Education

Abbreviated versions of our academic courses are available for CEU's as well.
