Program Overview

Entry level program

The entry-level professional program for students seeking their first physical therapist degree is 36 months in duration beginning in the summer session each year. One class is admitted each year.

Due to variability of available clinical sites, completion of the required curriculum may be extended beyond the minimum of 36 months. The program has no provisions for part-time students.

Learning activities include lecture, practical laboratory sessions and clinical education experiences. Clinical education experiences require the student to temporarily relocate out-of-state for at least one clinical session.

Residency programs

This program offers one-year residencies in neurology and sports physical therapy for licensed physical therapists. A residency program in pediatric physical therapy is in development.
