Fast track your DPT.
Draw upon your PTA experience and elevate your physical therapy career by applying to Hanover College’s Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program. Hanover DPT practices a holistic admissions process, meaning we look at the whole student and our admissions committee acknowledges your experience as a PTA during the admissions process.
The two-year Hanover DPT program empowers students to develop into exceptional physical therapists, through service-oriented, innovative and accelerated curriculum, delivered in a hybrid format. You can complete most of the coursework online, while staying in your community, maintaining all you’ve already established in your PT career. At Hanover, PTAs gain more career autonomy, find new ways to be of service, and build on their foundation of skills through our rigorous curriculum and one-on-one faculty support. Turn your PTA into a DPT in two years with Hanover.
Patient care drives you. Let it drive your degree, too.
