Program Description
The Doctor of Physical Therapy at Langston University is a full time day program with scheduled courses five days per week. It consists of a structured curriculum, which requires commitment and dedication on the part of the student.

The mission of the Doctor of Physical Therapy program is to educate and graduate individuals who possess the necessary academic and clinical skills to serve as clinician generalists in primary care physical therapy in either rural or urban settings. The graduate of the program will possess the essential skills necessary to work with underserved populations addressing minority health and minority health disparity issues within the scope of practice of physical therapy. The graduate of the program will be proficient at applying the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice for clinical decision making.

In support of our mission to graduate clinician generalists, we have assembled a highly-skilled and distinguished group of instructors with diverse clinical specializations and a record of scholarship and leadership.
