Program Description

KU's DPT program is nationally recognized for excellence in education and research in the field. A department of the School of Health Professions, the KU Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science is located on the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) campus in Kansas City, Kansas. In collaboration with The University of Kansas Health System adjacent to KUMC, students benefit from the opportunity to interact with a large number of health care professionals and leading researchers in real-world environments. 

Our DPT program is an accredited 3 year full-time graduate program designed to prepare a generalist physical therapy practitioner and to foster lifelong professional development. The program begins in late May and includes classroom, laboratory, research and clinical learning experiences. Students must complete 36 weeks of full-time clinical internships As an Academic Health Science Center, KUMC provides ample opportunity for physical therapist students to interact with a large number of health care professionals, as well as students from other disciplines. 

Admission to the DPT program at KUMC is a competitive process. The faculty values a well-rounded applicant; one who has demonstrated their academic and cognitive abilities as well as their personal, professional, and leadership potential. Class size is restricted; we generally admit no more than 60 students in any single year.
