Program Description
The DPT degree at the University of Michigan–Flint meets the challenge of preparing physical therapists to practice in the 21st century. The Physical Therapy Department at the University of Michigan-Flint educates students to become competent physical therapists through engagement in evidence-based practice, scholarship, and community service, thereby enhancing the health and well-being of the public.

The PT faculty mentor students into the profession by using a collegial model, which incorporates mutual respect and understanding between the faculty, staff, and physical therapy students as they proceed through the program. The collegial model encourages faculty and students to form close, effective working relationships that enhance student learning. The faculty has a consistent record of scholarly and service activity at the state, regional, and national levels of the profession and therefore mentor the student in leadership and service to the profession and community. The faculty also consists of members recognized for clinical specialization, which reinforces the clinical aspects of the physical therapy curriculum.

In short, the University of Michigan-Flint PT department is preparing physical therapists who are professional, competent practitioners for the rapidly changing health care industry of the 21st century.
