The Doctor of Science in Physical Therapy (DScPT) degree represents the highest clinical specialty doctorate in the world. This unique degree is designed to enhance the skills of practicing physical therapists. Working with our partner ASPIRE, and respecting the importance of fundamental principles of orthopedic manual therapy, each graduate will be recognized as a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist (COMT),
In addition to the COMT, the student will choose a concentration in Women’s Health or Orthopedic Manual Therapy. The Women’s Health concentration prepares the student to meet the underserved, complex physical therapy needs of women. In the Orthopedic Manual Therapy concentration, the student will gain the designation of SMT (Spinal Manipulative Therapist) and be ready to take their place as a master clinician. Our partnership with ASPIRE provides students the opportunity to pair the DScPT degree with the Manual Therapy Certifications culminating in Spinal Manipulative Therapist (SMT).
Delivery: Blended learning with interactive online courses, intensive hands-on short courses and clinical practice hours in the location of your choice.
Can typically be completed by full time students in 3-4 years and 5-7 years for part-time students.
July 15 for a Fall (late August) start
