The Doctor of Physical Therapy program will begin accepting applications in July 2021, with the first cohort of 48 students set to begin in May 2022. The full-time program is 120 credit hours and students will complete the DPT in 2 ½ years. In addition to the traditional classroom experience, students must complete three 10-week full-time clinical experiences – which include inpatient, outpatient, and student choice. Students are also required to participate in multiple service-learning projects.

Students are assigned a faculty advisor as soon as they begin the program. Time has been worked into the academic schedule each week for advising, which may be done in a group setting or in a one-on-one setting depending on the agenda for the week. 

We recognize that not all students learn in the same way, and we have developed a curriculum structure to include lecture, small group, problem-based learning, high-fidelity simulation and practical hands-on training.

Coursework information will be available in Winter 2020/21.
