Program Description:

The Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy reports that the Doctor of Physical Therapy class scored an outstanding 92% passing rate when taking the National Licensure Examination the first-time, and 100% passing rate on retaking the exam. A major feature that distinguishes the program is the well-structured, problem-based learning format used to present the clinical coursework. A second asset of the pro­gram is the collaborative teaching and research activities that occur among the many programs and departments of the university. These include anatomy and histology, neuroscience, and physiology, as well as specific clinical sciences germane to physical therapy, such as orthopedics, neurology, medicine, surgery, and cardiology. A third benefit of the program is an option for the dual DPT/Master of Public Health. Students participate in five full-time clinical affiliations that integrate the science and theory of physical therapy with clinical practice. Students have the opportunity to practice in a wide variety of healthcare settings across the country, under the guidance and supervision of experienced practicing therapists. The end result of the educational experience at New York Medical College is a graduate who is prepared to pass the national licensure examination of the American Physical Therapy Association and to excel in the current health care environment as a skilled and well-respected physical therapist.
