UPDATE FOR FUTURE ADMISSIONS CYCLES 

FSC DPT understands that COVID-19 has created extenuating circumstances and has transitioned universities to a remote delivery model. If your lab course was transitioned to an online format, we will still accept the coursework toward prerequisites for the Spring and/or Summer 2020 semesters. 

Pass/Fail coursework: During this time, we are learning that many institutions are offering students the option of completing their spring 2020 semester as a Pass/Fail or letter grade option. We are encouraging all prospective applicants to opt for the letter grade option if that is available. 

If this is not an option for your individual situation, we ask that you email our program at FSCDPTadmissions@flsouthern.edu to further discuss your options. 

Program Description

The Florida Southern Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program prepares physical therapy practitioners through dynamic engaged learning experiences and equips them with skills to provide patient-centered, evidence-based care. 

Our DPT classes are all face-to-face and limited to just 36 students. In this intimate setting, you'll have the benefit of hands-on learning and extra attention from your professors. The program is offered in an accelerated format: in seven total semesters over approximately 28 months.

Florida Southern College has invested millions of dollars in constructing brand new classrooms and laboratories in a state-of-the-art building.

All of our eight full-time school of physical therapy faculty members are doctorally prepared and have unique specialty expertise in such areas as neurological, musculoskeletal, or cardiopulmonary physical therapy.
