Doctor of Physical Therapy
Neumann University offers a three-year (9 semester), full-time Doctor of Physical Therapy program that is administered over the course of eleven weekends per term. This innovative format not only allows for students to maintain full-time enrollment status and to proceed through the program at an aggressive pace but also doesn’t require residency in Pennsylvania. Students will engage in their first of three clinical experiences in the second spring term and the final two clinical experiences in the final spring term. These are Monday-Friday commitments.
Faculty within the program are trained in the profession and continue working and performing research in the field. Students will become familiar with Pediatric care, Wound Management, Prosthetic care, Values and Ethics in Physical Therapy care, Administration and Management as well as have a well-rounded value of how to treat the overall patient.
This program begins each May with the application opening in the fall preceding. Applicants who show the highest competency will be invited to the campus for an interview before a decision is administered. This program admits thirty (30) individuals each cohort.
Neumann University does not participate in PTCAS.
Neumann University’s physical therapy program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) and is approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Neumann University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE).
