About the Program

The three-year DPT program begins with foundational learning, and students have the opportunity to progress to clinical coursework with community-based service and interprofessional learning embedded throughout. The curriculum then culminates in a series of clinical practicums that allow students to pursue their passions.

The PT faculty are incredible. They challenge my ability to clinically reason when seeing patients in the CARES clinic so I’ll be confident treating my own patients one day.

My professors are passionate about teaching. They go beyond classroom didactics, providing us incredible opportunities to learn directly with and from patients, their experiences, and perspectives. We are learning not only the science but also the art and practice of physical therapy. They are preparing us to become the best clinicians possible and better people in the process!
