Program Description more...

The Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program at Campbell University focuses on an evidence-supported curriculum centered on the patient and clinical practice in rural healthcare. The curriculum utilizes integrated, interdisciplinary education to prepare students to enter one of the most rewarding and fastest growing healthcare professions. Students who complete the program will earn a DPT degree and eligibility to become a candidate for initial licensure in the 53 jurisdictions recognized by the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT).

The mission of the Campbell University Department of Physical Therapy Program is to graduate doctors of physical therapy who deliver compassionate, patient-centered care from a service-oriented, Christian-guided view, with a special emphasis on rural healthcare environments. Our graduates use evidence-supported practice and sound clinical judgment, respect cultural differences, and model high moral character and professional responsibility consistent with the vision and mission of the College and University.

Our vision is to enable distinguished, ethical, and compassionate physical therapists, prepared for independent autonomous practice in rural communities as a part of a multidisciplinary healthcare team, serving as leaders for future professional direction, and influencing health disparities through advocacy of patients and profession.
