The DPT program is designed for qualified individuals who wish to further their academic studies in the field of physical therapy. The program specifically targets traditional and nontraditional students with the demonstrated potential to navigate the academic rigors of an accelerated, hybrid model DPT curriculum.

The DPT program is designed for the delivery of a contemporary and evidence-based curriculum using faculty and contributors who are dedicated educators, clinicians, researchers, and leaders in the physical therapy profession. Using a blended learning model, our curriculum combines the best aspects of online learning activities and interactions, hands-on laboratory immersive sessions, and collaborative clinical education experiences into an innovative and dynamic learning experience.

Students are expected to hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university and complete the formal application to be considered for admission into the DPT Program.

The program's graduates will be prepared for skillful, mindful and compassionate clinical practice, lifelong learning and professional development, and selfless service to their community and profession.
