Doctor of Physical Therapy
The Doctor of Physical Therapy program utilizes a modified problem-based curriculum unique to the region. The mission of the Physical Therapy program is to prepare doctors of physical therapy, grounded in the evidence-based practice, who are health care practitioners of choice for individuals with conditions affecting movement and function. Clinical activities are integrated throughout the three-year curriculum. Integrated part-time clinical experiences take place in local physical therapy clinics and coincide directly with didactic learning activities. Clinical full-time practicums take place in clinics locally, nationally, and internationally. The majority of full-time clinical placements occur within the greater metropolitan Washington area and nearby states. Students complete full-time practicums in 8- or 12-week rotations, at three different clinic sites. Study Abroad opportunities also available.
The D.P.T. program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE).
