Program Description

The Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program within the School of Health Professions (SHP) at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) is a three year entry-level professional program. Graduates of the TTUHSC DPT Program are qualified to apply for State Licensure and sit for the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE). 

The mission of the DPT program is to educate students to be autonomous, evidence-based practitioners who improve the health of people through the application of their clinical skills, collaboration with other health care professionals, and commitment to life-long learning and community service.

The DPT program is offered on three campuses: Lubbock, Amarillo and Odessa. The physical facilities at the three campuses include modern, high tech teaching and laboratory equipment designed to facilitate an optimal learning environment.

Consistent with the TTUHSC Mission and School of Health Professions (SHP) Mission, faculty of the DPT program are committed to teaching, research, and service. The Center for Rehabilitation Research, within the School of Health Professions, consists of four clinical research laboratories (Clinical Biomechanics, Clinical Postural Control, Clinical Musculoskeletal, and Clinical Anatomy). This center serves as one of many resources for faculty to productively pursue scholarship.
