Our vision is to educate caring professionals to serve, lead and teach, and our mission is to provide quality education programs in concert with the Judaic commitment to social justice, intellectual pursuit, and service to humanity.

Our entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy program is dedicated to preparing knowledgeable, skilled and caring practitioners who can assume and adapt to the multiple roles of a physical therapist in our ever-changing healthcare environment.

The curriculum is designed to advance your capabilities in the realm of clinical care, education, and healthcare policy development.
