The Residential Doctor of Physical Therapy (Res DPT) Program at MUSC

Physical therapy student works with patient.

For students interested in living in or near Charleston, SC, and engaging in a more traditional on-campus experience, our Residential DPT (Res DPT) is the perfect option. Students attend classes on the MUSC campus in the heart of the historic downtown, participate in activities that support the local community, and work collaboratively with students from other programs across the university. Residential students are routinely immersed in the rich MUSC medical and health environment for learning experiences every semester.
