The Program is an entry-level post-baccalaureate clinical doctorate (DPT) degree curriculum. The Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education of the American Physical Therapy Association has granted this program Accreditation. A recent re-accreditation site visit was extremely positive. For detailed information about this curriculum, open house dates, etc., please go to our website listed above. Admission is every fall semester for the following June. The DPT Program is collaboration between the Graduate Center of CUNY, Hunter College, and the College of Staten Island. The Graduate Center of CUNY is the only institution within CUNY that grants doctoral degrees. This program is administratively housed at the Graduate Center of CUNY, but students apply for admission to either Hunter College or the College of Staten Island. Students do not take classes at both sites. The Hunter College PT faculty and Program Director are responsible for the day-to-day implementation of the curriculum at Hunter College. The previous undergraduate and MPT graduate program has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education of the American Physical Therapy Association since 1971. Alumni of our undergraduate and MPT curriculum have all achieved a passing rate on the National Licensing Examination equal to or above the national average. Students will enter the DPT Physical Therapy Program in the summer semester; it is designed for fulltime study during the day. The full-time faculty is active in many facets of the Physical Therapy profession. All faculty are engaged in research and/or publishing in peer reviewed journals. Faculty members have an average of fourteen years teaching experience and over eighteen years clinical experience. All faculty have doctoral degrees.
