Program Description

The Stockton University Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program's dynamic and progressive curriculum prepares students to become twenty-first century physical therapists. We have moved into state-of-the-art classrooms and labs in a new Health Sciences building located on our beautiful wooded campus 10 miles from the Jersey Shore. Two hospitals located on Stockton's campus provide clinical settings for students to enhance their education. Clinical education experiences are located throughout the New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New York area, with opportunity for clinical education in most other states. 

Students who are currently undergraduates and applicants who have earned a baccalaureate degree are invited to apply for admission to our program. Completion of a minimum of 64 earned credit hours of undergraduate education at a regionally accredited college or university is required at the time of application for currently-enrolled Stockton University undergraduate students; non-Stockton students must earn a baccalaureate degree in the spring semester prior to entering the DPT program in the fall. We allow a maximum of 2 outstanding prerequisites courses to be completed by the end of the spring semester of the academic year in which you apply. The DPT curriculum is designed to be completed in 3 years. Stockton undergraduates who qualify for admission to the DPT program will have the opportunity to complete their undergraduate and graduate degrees in 6 years ("3 + 3").
