Program Description

St. John's University offers a graduate program leading to a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree. The program combines St. John's 150-year legacy as a Catholic, Vincentian, and global university with innovative and hands-on training to prepare graduates to provide care in the ever-changing field of health care. Housed within the Department of Clinical Health Professions in the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, the DPT program is part of a rich history of scientists and clinicians whose purpose is to improve the health and quality of life of those they serve. St. John's urban location provides experiential learning in world-renowned hospital systems and collaboration between the DPT program and St. John's Athletic Department affords students unique opportunities to interact with Division I sports teams. The DPT program faculty affirm the mission and values of St. John's University. We are committed to fostering excellence, scholarly activity, rigorous standards, innovative application of knowledge, and service to support the common good of a diverse local and global community. We aim to empower students and graduates to be compassionate, ethical leaders, autonomous practitioners, and effective team members of the health-care community who advocate for the prevention of injury and the promotion of health and wellness.
