Program Description

The ASU College of Health Sciences offers the Clinical Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT). Our goal is to recruit, educate, and graduate top students who will enter the field ready to accept the responsibilities that come with caring for those in need of services. The program is housed in the John L. Buskey Health Sciences Center which includes state-of-the art laboratories in anatomy, biomechanics, clinical practice, and exercise science. 

The philosophy of Alabama State University's Physical Therapy program (ASU PT) is based on the belief that concepts from the physical, biological, and social sciences serve as the foundation for physical therapy education and practice. Therefore, the elements of prevention, examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis and intervention are based on the application of these concepts for a better understanding of patient's physical, psychological, and social condition, thereby enhancing overall physical therapy management. Furthermore, we recognize that individual and societal differences have a significant impact on health, illness, disability, and recovery. Consequently, the program attempts to address these issues throughout the didactic and clinical curricula to achieve meaningful patient outcomes. 

Alabama State University is located in Montgomery, the capitol city of Alabama. The city is located approximately 160 miles from Atlanta, 91 miles from Birmingham, and 168 miles from Mobile and the Gulf of Mexico.
