Hands On Physical Therapy

The entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program provides the required education necessary for graduates to take the professional license examination and embark on a professional career in physical therapy.


Service Projects

Every spring, third year students have the opportunity to utilize their skills providing a clinical course for physical therapists practicing in Nicaragua.

Nicaragua is one of our many service projects.
