Physical Therapy (DPT)
Physical therapists focus on treating patients to maximize their mobility and independence.
At Kean, the doctor of physical therapy (DPT) program is built on the belief that the field of physical therapy is made stronger by the dedication of new professionals. While patient outcomes are the ultimate goal, the program also strives to increase scholarly advances and advocate for the profession.
Students receive an early introduction to the application of knowledge in clinical settings, beginning in their second semester. The doctoral program overall includes a total of 42 weeks of full-time clinical practice experiences. In addition, students take part in 240 hours of integrated clinical experiences to accompany their major clinical-didactic courses.
The DPT program educates, develops and supports aspiring doctors of physical therapy in their quest to become skilled clinicians, and develop rewarding careers working in a dynamic clinical practice environment. The ultimate result is better treatment and outcomes for patients.
