Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT)
The program focuses on providing students with a philosophy that the standards of physical therapy practice are dynamic and requires the application, evaluation and adaptation of existing, and the generation of new, evidence-based knowledge. This program prepares you to evaluate and treat individuals of all ages that have health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move.
As a physical therapist, you will diagnose and enhance physical and functional abilities; restore and promote optimal physical function; and prevent the onset and progression of limitations that may result from diseases, disorders, conditions or injuries. Physical therapists provide care for people in a variety of settings, including hospitals, private practices, outpatient clinics, home health agencies, schools, sports and fitness facilities, work settings and nursing homes. Students will graduate with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT).
