Chatham University's Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program can be distinguished from other PT programs nationally on the basis of problem-based learning (PBL), our prime urban location, short program duration, and strong program outcomes:

Innovative Curriculum - Our PBL teaching methodology is a small group, student-centered approach that is more enjoyable for students, and studies show it advances communication, research, and lifelong learning skills.

The Pittsburgh Advantage - Chatham students reap the benefits of studying in a premier healthcare hub with access to a large and diverse network of hospitals, clinics and rehabilitation facilities. Pittsburgh also offers big city amenities with low cost of living.

Just Seven Semesters - Return on investment is high and fast when you can start earning a lucrative salary after only 28 months of study. Students pay a flat tuition rate per term, and our program is priced very competitively.

Alumni Success - Licensure pass rates are well above the state and national levels, and our program boasts a 100% job placement rate within six months of graduation.
