Program Description

Engage with healthcare advancement, enrich the communities you serve, empower your patients and their families - all in under 3 years!

The Methodist University Doctor of Physical Therapy (MU DPT) Program is a learning-centered community which shapes and delivers practice-ready graduates in under 3 years. MU DPT faculty engage DPT learners through interactive teaching whilst promoting the health of society by enhancing movement through evidence-based physical therapy education. Our graduates are recognized for collaborating as servant-leaders for healthcare who act compassionately, demonstrate excellence in clinical reasoning, and utilize a holistic approach to advance society's health and the overall human experience.

The MU DPT Program is housed in the contemporary Thomas R McLean Health Sciences Building. The building design provides innovative, collaborative, and inviting learning spaces. Additional key health sciences resources on campus include the cadaver lab and MU General Simulation Hospital. The Davis Memorial Library provides access to resources, information for intellectual inquiry and dedicated study spaces. The MU Writing Center exists to help learners develop their writing skills both academically and professionally and offers both face-to-face and online consultations. 

We welcome a new cohort of up to 40 DPT learners every August. The 8 semester program consists of 92 didactic credits and 19 clinical credits, which includes 38 weeks of clinical education experiences. The curriculum provides learning opportunities designed for the synthesis of content in a sequential and progressive manner and strikes an integrated balance between professional formation, applied, clinical, and behavioral sciences.

Our philosophy of education embraces the core value that learning is a shared responsibility between the faculty and DPT learners. Our faculty are readily available to meet the needs of our learners to ensure success throughout the program. DPT learners work collaboratively with expert clinicians immersed in the contemporary clinical environment and are exposed to interprofessional educational experiences and service-learning opportunities throughout the curriculum. MU DPT Program believes that this approach enables the program to consistently challenge, engage, and empower today's physical therapists to enhance the profession and enrich the communities they serve.
