The mission of the Doctor of Physical Therapy program is to provide a supportive, student-focused learning environment that encourages and educates individuals to develop into compassionate, clinically and culturally competent licensed physical therapists who are productive citizens. The physical therapy curriculum will allow opportunities for scholarship, community engagement, and professional service, in addition to in-depth learning in human movement.
