Program Description
The Division of Physical Therapy at American International College is dedicated to providing you with the academic and foundational knowledge and skills for a professional career as a physical therapist. With a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree from AIC, you will learn to deliver diverse patient care, provide services that restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disability. You will also learn to plan and modify treatment and instruction, make use of physical measures, activities, and devices for prevention and therapeutic purposes, as well as provide consultative, educational, and advisory services.

Our program educates graduates to practice autonomously, effectively, and with integrity in a multifaceted and culturally diverse healthcare environment. In concert with the mission of the college, the program in physical therapy facilitates a dynamic educational environment through interactive and collaborative learning experiences. Students graduate with the cognitive, psychomotor, and professional skills that enable them to assume the diverse role of healthcare practitioner, including clinician, advocate, manager, teacher, learner, researcher, and leader. In addition, the program facilitates the development of compassionate practitioners through service to the academic and local communities.
