Program Description
The DPT program offers an integrated curriculum designed to prepare students to meet the demands of diverse practice settings in an evolving health care environment. Coursework increases in complexity throughout the three years in the areas of foundational science (anatomy, physiology, kinesiology), clinical science (care of neurologic, musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, and integument disorders), behavioral science (education, administration, and development), research, and clinical practice. The curriculum combines academic and clinical coursework with an emphasis on critical inquiry, clinical problem solving, education, professionalism, and cultural competency. Research courses throughout the last two years of study culminate in completion of a formal academic research study, organized as group projects and mentored by faculty.The clinical affiliations culminate in a clinical project focused on clinical involvement. Students also are required to participate in structured community and professional service as part of the curriculum.

The DPT program curriculum is designed to prepare the student to be a leader in any practice area of the physical therapy profession, including clinical practice, research, education, administration, and professional service. The curriculum continuously emphasizes the interrelationship between practical application and theory, as well as the view of the patient/client as an individual. The faculty employs a variety of instructional methods: lectures, discussions, laboratory practice, seminars, clinical affiliations, problem solving, collaborative learning, case based examples, and self-directed learning experiences. Competency and proficiency are determined through written and practical examinations, as well as student presentations, projects, and portfolios.

The faculty of Touro College Doctor of Physical Therapy Program has one of the highest number of certified clinical specialists of any program on the east coast. Students benefit from our faculty's vast and varied clinical expertise as they progress through the curriculum. Real world experience brought into the classroom truly enhances all our students education.
