Program Description

Franklin Pierce University offers its Doctor of Physical Therapy program at both the Manchester, NH campus and Goodyear, AZ Centers. Students require a Bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university and completion of all prerequisite coursework prior to full acceptance into the program.

The DPT program, which is based on current knowledge of practice, constantly exposes students to advances in the profession. A cornerstone of this curriculum is the concept of primary care as an evolving health care environment. Concepts that prepare students to function in this dynamic system are integrated within the curriculum and are reinforced throughout the course progression. Students develop skills in professionalism, compassion, time management, team dynamics, critical thinking, documentation, use of referral systems, service learning, interpersonal communication, effective written communication, and prevention of injuries, as well as promotion of health, wellness, and fitness. At the center of the curriculum are the missions of the University, the College, and the program, and a focus on the patient as the source of information and the primary health decision-maker.

Physical therapy students and faculty at Franklin Pierce University appreciate the partnership between the patient and the health care provider and serve as advocates for the patient. Graduates of this program are practitioners who are kind and compassionate, integrate mind, body, and spirit, make continuing contributions to the community, demonstrate commitment to lifelong learning, and are respected as highly competent professionals.
