Program Description

The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, founded in 1845, is a private Christian university located in Belton, the Heart of Central Texas. The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program aspires to be recognized as the program of choice for individuals seeking to become competent, effective and ethical physical therapy practitioners with a foundation based in Christian principles and values. Faculty members demonstrate Christian values in teaching and mentoring students and encourage students to grow spiritually as well as academically.

Our accelerated 28-month curriculum is designed to help students learn and apply scientific theory and professional skills through focused course work, completion of a research project, and 32 weeks of clinical experiences. Successful applicants must be highly dedicated and self-motivated learners in order to manage the fast-paced curriculum. The program's dedicated faculty provide extensive mentoring and personalized attention to promote student success. The small class size of 40 students (13:1 student:faculty ratio) allows students to develop positive, personal relationships with professors in a collaborative environment. A guiding principle for program faculty, staff, students, and graduates is consideration for addressing the needs of underserved communities in a global society.

Doctor of Physical Therapy faculty members are actively involved and recognized leaders in clinical practice, research, as well as professional and community service. The program mission places an emphasis on leadership and service, with opportunities to develop in these areas that are woven throughout the curriculum. Students have numerous opportunities to participate in service learning activities, community service, and volunteer activities.  The Cru Community Clinic provides an opportunity for students to immediately integrate their learning as it is an on-campus, interprofessional pro bono clinic. Students also complete a research project and have an opportunity to present or publish their research findings before graduation. Graduates from this program are prepared to assume leadership roles in rehabilitation services along with professional and community organizations.
