Program Description

The University of North Georgia, uniquely situated in the beautiful foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, blends small-town charm with cutting edge education.  The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program intentionally maintains a small student-to-faculty ratio with an innovative 3-year curriculum to produce physical therapists who are movement specialists and leaders in the field.  Our curriculum is grounded in foundational and clinical sciences with progressive experiences in clinical education.  Integrated clinical experiences are introduced early and woven throughout the program to optimize professional development.  

Students complete 34 weeks of full-time clinical education experiences at a variety of national and international facilities.  Faculty bring a mixture of clinical and academic doctoral preparation and many are board-certified clinical specialists.  All students participate in a faculty-led research or innovation project to answer clinical questions and to learn to think like entrepreneurs. Leadership opportunities abound through management of the pro-bono Student-led Therapy And Rehab (STAR) Clinic or by becoming tutors or graduate assistants.
