Academics

Since you’ll be hands-on as a physical therapist, we designed our physical therapist education to be hands-on too.

Our Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) curriculum is a bit different than the physical therapist education you may find at other schools. Our students take courses for three years, nine straight semesters, summers included. This makes it easier for you to learn and retain vital practice concepts. And you earn your doctoral degree that much sooner.

Plus, you complement the valuable hands-on learning you receive in our Human Anatomy Lab with 43 weeks of clinical experience. That’s three more weeks than the national average. During this time, you familiarize yourself with a number of specializations by working in four different settings:

  • Hospital
  • In-patient setting
  • Out-patient setting
  • Setting of your choice
