Program Description
The University of Scranton physical therapy department strives to enroll graduate-level students who are academically strong, caring, and committed to the profession of physical therapy. The DPT curriculum is designed to develop doctors of physical therapy who are knowledgeable, competent, service-oriented, self-assured, adaptable, reflective and sensitive to individual diversity. We are committed to the graduation of entry-level physical therapists who meet the changing needs of the individuals they will serve and are capable of providing physical therapy services in the physical therapy setting.

The Doctor of Physical Therapy program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). The professional phase of the program requires the completion of three full years comprised of six semesters and three summer sessions. Following completion of all prerequisites and acceptance into the DPT program, the coursework begins in late May or early June with Anatomy for PT. The four, eight-week clinical internships occur during the second and third summer sessions and the entire final semester of the program. Internship sites are primarily located in the Middle Atlantic and Northeast regions of the United States, but the department also maintains clinical internship contracts throughout the country.
