Department of Physical Therapy

Since its inception, the Physical Therapy Department has been dedicated to the success and professional development of all our students so that they are prepared to provide excellent, evidence-based, care to the diverse communities they serve. One hundred percent of the graduates of the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program have passed the national licensure examination and 100% accepted positions in their choice of practice setting. In addition to pro-bono clinics in each patient care course, 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. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic our program and our students had to adapt to a new way of learning and providing patient care. Lectures were delivered virtually, labs were split and conducted wearing masks and face shields, and some full-time clinical placement sites cancelled while others were shortened. With the campus transitions back to in-person learning, we are excited for students to regain the opportunity to interact directly with professors and peers in classrooms and labs. As our students continue to feel the adverse effects of the last two years of COVID learning conditions, the Department of Physical Therapy remains committed to helping each student achieve their professional goal of becoming a Physical Therapist.

Please consider supporting the Doctor of Physical Therapy Scholarship Fund. The financial cost of this doctoral program is sometimes the biggest burden for our students. This scholarship fund is available for DPT students in need to help cover the cost of full-time clinical affiliations. Please donate to this or any of the other scholarships within the Department of Physical Therapy. Thank you in advance for your support.
