Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The post-professional Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy degree is designed for physical therapists who have an entry-level Bachelor of Science in physical therapy or a Master of Physical Therapy or a Master of Science in Physical Therapy. The program consists of a set of courses that allows physical therapists who have obtained a Bachelor of Science in physical therapy, Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) or Master of Science in Physical Therapy (MSPT) to earn a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree. These courses will transition an entry-level BSPT, MPT or MSPT physical therapist to a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. The Commission on Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) does not accredit post-professional physical therapy education programs; thus, the Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy is not accredited by CAPTE.

Accreditation:

Oakland University is accredited as a doctoral degree-granting institution by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

International Student Requirements:

International applicants requiring an I-20 for a visa must also submit additional documents, including an International Student Supplemental Application, financial documents, transcript evaluations, and proof of English language proficiency (TOEFL, IELTS or MELAB).
