Do you enjoy helping others? Are you fascinated by anatomy or neuroscience? Physical therapy may be just right for you. Here, you'll enjoy small class sizes and learn from experienced faculty. We are family here and we can’t wait for you to join us.
Physical therapy is a hands-on field, and you'll have many opportunities to experience it with the lab-heavy curriculum, utilizing one of many lab spaces including a state-of-the-art anatomy lab.
Like being hands-on? Our students participate in our on-campus physical therapy clinic during the first two years of the DPT program. Then they perform 36 weeks of clinical internships before graduating with their doctorate.
Networking is an important aspect of any career. Every DPT student is given an American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) membership to facilitate great connections in the profession.
Our program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE). Accreditation assures you’re receiving a quality education that has met certain requirements.
