Trine University's Doctor of Physical Therapy program is an intensive three-year, full-time program.

The program consists of lectures, labs, and clinical education with an emphasis on real patient care experiences.

CARE is an integrated clinical experience that every student participates in 8 mornings each semester for the first 5 semesters.

You'll work hard during the program, but we all need to relax and have a little fun sometimes. 

Beyond the academic and clinical education is a close-knit community of students, staff, and faculty to help you along the way. 

From field day to pub night, a Tin Caps baseball game or Thanksgiving carry-in, you'll get to know those in the DPT program both in and out of the classroom.

Program Description

Trine University's Doctor of Physical Therapy program is an intensive three-year, full-time program that once complete will prepare you to sit for licensure and finally practice in a clinical setting. The program consists of lectures, labs, and clinical education with an emphasis on real patient care experiences.

Students will complete the didactic and practical learning in the newly renovated Trine University Fort Wayne education center on the Parkview Hospital Randallia campus in Fort Wayne, Indiana, using state-of-the-art classrooms, clinical skills labs and gross anatomy lab. The program partners with many local health providers, including Parkview Health and Lutheran Health Network, for clinical education during the first two years of the program as well as full-time internships in the final year.

A unique part of our program is CARE - CARE is an integrated clinical experience that every student participates in 8 mornings each semester for the first 5 semesters.

Beyond the academic and clinical education is a close-knit community of students, staff, and faculty to help you along the way. From field day to pub night, a Tin Caps baseball game or Thanksgiving carry-in, you'll get to know those in the DPT program both in and out of the classroom.
