Program Description

The mission of the Doctor of Physical Therapy program is to provide a student-centered education that prepares graduates for socially responsible, outcomes-oriented, evidence-based, autonomous and collaborative physical therapy practice. 

The DPT program strives to attract a dynamic and diverse faculty who possess a common desire to shape the physical therapists of tomorrow by modeling both clinical and teaching excellence. By design, the DPT program plans on expanding on the progressive model of the University by incorporating advances in technology and educational theory in the development and implementation of its programs. RMUoHP recognizes that even with the best technology and curriculum, the heart and soul of the program is the student. Our program will cater to highly motivated students who wish to be active participants in their education. 

In keeping with both the University and Program Missions, RMUoHP graduates will be prepared to enter the physical therapy work force as skilled and ethical members of the health care community.

The course sequence flows from the mission, philosophy, and goals of the DPT program, and is designed to facilitate the education of our students. The curriculum outline, list of courses, and course descriptions are located on the RMUoHP website. The program is a traditional, campus-based program consisting of 8 continuous semesters of classroom and clinical experiences.
