The mission of Husson University’s School of Physical Therapy is to develop physical therapists who are specialists in the art and science of human movement, embody the characteristics of lifelong learners, and strive to be agents of change. Graduates shall be distinguishable by their skills, ethical integrity, cultural competence, collaboration, and leadership. Graduates will use evidence-based practice to optimize human movement and promote health and wellness in a dynamic healthcare environment.

The entry-level physical therapy program is designed to provide high school and college graduates with a thorough, efficient, and affordable path to a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree. Undergraduate students enroll in an accelerated six-year program leading to a B.S. in Exercise Science and an entry-level DPT degree. Individuals who have a bachelor's degree and have met all the course prerequisites enter as graduate students into the three-year professional DPT program.

The DPT program has highly-skilled faculty members offering a collegial and supportive learning environment for students’ academic and professional development. Study consists of discipline-specific courses that prepare the student for clinical practice and licensure as a physical therapist. Three unpaid full time clinical experiences are required. Additionally, students participate in a variety of experiential community-based learning experiences and a student run pro bono clinic providing care to the underserved.
