As a public institution dedicated to the discovery, dissemination, and application of scientific knowledge, Augusta University (formerly the Medical College of Georgia, Georgia Health Sciences University and Georgia Regents University) values leadership, social responsibility, compassion, diversity, professionalism, and excellence. The Doctor of Physical Therapy program is designed to challenge talented and ambitious learners to grow into reflective physical therapy practitioners. The Department of Physical Therapy is housed in state of the art teaching and research facilities including a human movement science laboratory, and cardiovascular health and wellness laboratory. Each graduate completes a scholarly project (research with faculty or a clinical case report) and presents the results and conclusions of the study to a body of professional peers. The program requires 36 months (9 consecutive semesters) of full-time study. A new class of 40 students enters in May of each year. Classes are scheduled in a traditional weekday format at the main campus in Augusta. Graduation occurs in May. Over 95% of admitted students graduate from the program. 100% of program graduates pass the licensure exam, with 98.2% doing so on their first attempt (3 year average).
The deposit is non-refundable.
