The Physical Therapy program at Misericordia University accepts most of its students directly from high school into a Pre-DPT program.  Students pursue an undergraduate major while completing the DPT prerequisites, and are then guaranteed progression into the graduate DPT program upon achieving specific academic criteria.

A very limited number of students is typically accepted on a space-available basis into the graduate portion of the Doctor of Physical Therapy program.  The Physical Therapy Department anticipates having no seats available in the DPT class for graduate admission during the 2020-2021 admissions cycle.  The DPT program may, however, have available seats in the future.  To apply, contact the Admissions Office directly:  www.misericordia.edu/apply
