Program Description

Since its start in 2016, the Doctor of Physical Therapy (UMUDPT) program curriculum at the University of Mount Union has been intentional in its development and refinement of an integrated curriculum that fosters active developmental and transformative learning amongst faculty, staff, and students across clinic, classroom, research, and community.  

Instrumental to our student's mastery of the art and science of physical therapy is our focused attention to details that matter. Cohort by cohort we prioritize not only our program's strategic plan, but also, through large and small group learning experiences, the individual and collective needs of our students. Members of UMUDPT work as a team who believe in and commit to our profession, its research, practices, and standards, to the benefit of all those we serve. 

Program Highlights Include: 

  • An environment conducive to meaningful growth and co-creation of personally and professionally significant learning aims
  • State-of-the-art facilities invite interdisciplinary research and service-based learning opportunities
  • Clinical partnerships establish diverse working relationships across the United States
  • Student to faculty classroom/lab ratio 30:1/15:1
  • Competitive overall NPTE, graduation, and employment rates
  • Progressive interdisciplinary research opportunities
  • Uniquely-combined problem-based and traditional/virtual classroom learning curriculum
  • Emphasis on professional development through student engagement with APTA and OPTA resources, events, and activities
