Program Description
The Simmons DPT Program provides a strong foundation in evidence-based clinical practice and prepares students to become dynamic leaders in the profession. This three-year, full-time program is designed for men and women who have a college degree from another regionally accredited U.S. college or university or a post-secondary institution abroad which is recognized by the Ministry of Education in the home country.

Our real-world approach to teaching engages students as they develop professionally and academically. All of our clinical courses, starting with the fall semester of the first year, have 4 important components: lecture, skills laboratory, small group discussion (tutorial), and one day per week of integrated clinical experience (ICE). The program includes 36 weeks of full-time clinical education experiences, during the three years. Because doctoral-level practice requires an understanding of clinical research, students collaborate with faculty to either complete an independent research project or a systematic review, a comprehensive critical analysis of the evidence on a topic of their choice. DPT students attend classes both at Simmons and at Harvard Medical School, located one block away. In addition, more than 200 nationwide health care sites provide a wide of range of clinical education experience and valuable professional connections.
