Program Description
The Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program prepares graduates to become licensed physical therapists. The program uses a selective admission process from which a new class of 24 students is invited each summer trimester to begin study in the 3-year DPT program. The curriculum, grounded in Christian principles, builds on the students’ undergraduate foundation in the arts and sciences, and includes 124 graduate-level credits where students progress through and integrate foundational and clinical sciences, patient/client management skills, and ultimately, the provision of person-centered care.
