Department of Physical Therapy

Why we need your support

Since its inception, the Physical Therapy Department has been dedicated to the success and professional development of all students so that they are prepared to provide excellent care to the diverse communities they serve. Over the years, Sacramento State’s physical therapy graduates have been destined for jobs in their choice of practice setting. Our graduates from the last three years have an overall passing rate of 97% on that examination, and 100% of new graduates responding to our 6-month survey report working at sites such as hospitals, clinics, skilled nursing facilities or schools. Our program is one of the few to use a state-of-the-art simulation lab to educate physical therapy students, along with nursing students, in caring for and responding to emergencies with patients in an acute-care environment. Finally, Sacramento State was the first California State University campus to receive the requisite authorization to offer an independent Doctorate in Physical Therapy program.
