Program Description

The mission of the physical therapy program at The University of Findlay is to empower students to help transform society by optimizing movement and function to improve the lives and well-being of those they serve. From the time you begin taking classes on campus you will be assigned to a physical therapy faculty member and continue with him or her as your advisor throughout your time on campus. Our class size in the traditional curriculum is small with a maximum of 36 students. The Traditional Physical Therapy program at The University of Findlay is designed to help you become a generalist practitioner with the ability to function in a variety of settings, geographical locations, and roles including service provision, client advocacy, research, education, consultation, referral and administration. 

This program accepts applications from UF students who are in their third undergraduate year as well as any student with a completed or soon to be completed bachelor's degree. The 3+3 traditional physical therapy pathway is focused on completing general education and program specific prerequisites during the first three years. Students who complete the program through this pathway will receive a Bachelor of Science degree after the fourth year and a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree after the sixth year. Note this 3 + 3 option is only available to UF students. Students with a bachelor's degree from UF or another institution would enter directly into the three-year graduate phase of the program. Professional classes commence each summer semester. 

Please Note: University of Findlay students enrolled in the 3+3 program are considered undergraduates through their third year. The fourth, fifth, and sixth years are completed as a graduate student. Students are encouraged to investigate alternative funding opportunities to complete graduate school during these three years.
