Program Description

The mission of the three year full-time Marymount University Doctor of Physical Therapy Program is to prepare generalist practitioners to deliver best available physical therapist practice for improving movement, function and health across diverse individuals and communities. The program employs a dynamic learning-in-context environment that is warm and welcoming. Critical thinking, professionalism, respecting individual differences, and adherence to ethical practices ground all classroom, clinic, and community activities. 

The program utilizes a modified problem-based (mPBL) curriculum design that blends a traditional instructor-directed format with a more student-directed, problem-based, active-learning format. The mPBL design uses commonly occurring patient problems to serve as a catalyst for students to identify their learning needs and guide their learning activities. Students benefit from significant hands-on experience in their coursework, as well as in clinical internships across the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia (DMV) region. 

Marymount University is located in Arlington, Virginia just minutes from the nation's capital. The Doctor of Physical Therapy program is located at Marymount's 4040 Center in the Ballston neighborhood, a newly renovated, vibrant, active community with close access to the subway, bus system, numerous restaurants, shops, clubs, and the arts.
