    Program Description
    The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program is a 36-month (including summers), entry-level professional program emphasizing the scientific basis of human structure and human movement, the spiritual basis of human worth, and the integration of these foundational elements into a comprehensive and problem-solving, evidence- and consensus-based approach to artful evaluation and skillful treatment. Graduates have a solid generalist perspective of patient care in a variety of professional treatment settings with a strong foundation for post-professional specialization and lifelong learning. All applications, whether before May 15, 2017 or after July 1, 2017 but before Oct 2, 2017 will be considered for the class entering Feb 2018.
