Department of Physical Therapy

Welcome to the Department of Physical Therapy

We are proud to offer one of the top-ranked Doctorate of Physical Therapy programs in the state, with students who consistently pass licensure exams with a 100% pass rate annually. Our entry-level post-baccalaureate DPT program, known for its quality and affordability, enables students to find employment soon after graduating.

The department proudly offers a multitude of on-site state-of-the-art clinics, which were developed with students and the community in mind. These clinics provide unique learning opportunities for our DPT students, allowing for the integration of classroom teaching into patient care very early on in the curriculum. 

The department also strongly supports scientific inquiry and critical thinking within the curriculum and among our talented faculty, who are involved in a variety of clinical research studies. We invite you to explore more about our program at the links below!
