    We are encouraging applicants to get creative and obtain observation hours where possible: inclusive of telehealth or any other sort of interaction with a licensed physical therapist where an applicant can learn more about physical therapy. If you have a question on if your specific observation experience will be accepted, please email Jaclyn Levesque, Admissions & Enrollment Coordinator.

    As part of the admissions process, our program requires 2 letters of recommendation. Normally, we require one of those letters to be from a physical therapist. For the 2020-2021 application cycle, a letter of recommendation from a physical therapist while preferred, is not required. References should speak to the applicant’s potential for working in health care.
