If you hold a baccalaureate degree in another field of study, the Post Baccalaureate Doctor of Physical Therapy program [PB-DPT] may be right for you. With an earned undergraduate degree and the completion of the outlined core prerequisites, you may apply as a graduate student to the professional phase of our DPT program. As such, you will join an existing cohort of undergraduate students and together will work as a graduating class toward the DPT.

Our DPT builds on the university’s core values of interdisciplinary education, urban engagement, international knowledge, and cutting-edge research. Faculty are active in the American Physical Therapy Association and engaged in active clinical research and practice. A hallmark of our program is the integration of experiential learning and didactic education whether through use of standardized patients, communication and interaction with community consultants, participation in service-learning projects, or engagement in research with our faculty.
