Hampton University offers an entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy degree program (DPT). This program is designed to prepare physical therapists at an entry-level that exhibit the diagnostic and evaluative skills necessary for autonomy and competence in therapeutic interventions. In addition, the curriculum goals emphasize the acquisition in skills related to critical inquiry, communication, and sensitivity to diversity, planning for self-growth and understanding, management in the health care environment, and application of ethical principles and values.
Hampton University has approval to confer the Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the
State Council on Higher Education in Virginia (SCHEV) and accreditation from the Commission
on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE).
