DOCTORATE

Doctor of Physical Therapy · DPT

Residential | Full-Time | 8 Semesters

Program Highlights

Accelerated Program

Graduate an entire semester sooner than most PT schools. Start working with patients sooner. Earn your Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in only 8 semesters (about 2.5 years). Even though our program is accelerated, you still will have more clinical hours than the national average.

Pro-Bono Community Rehabilitation Clinic

Have the opportunity to care for and serve real patients as you work alongside experienced physical therapists and faculty in our University’s pro-bono PT clinic, the Community Rehabilitation Center. Our clinic serves members of Utah County who can’t afford physical therapy treatment. Implement what you are learning for those in need.

Practicing Faculty

Learn from practicing physical therapists. We believe in having faculty that continue working in their clinic to stay up-to-date on skills and best practices. By continuing to work in the field, our faculty bring real experiences into the classroom to better train the next generation of physical therapists.

2 Start Dates

Our 2 start dates (Summer & Fall) allow us to accommodate students graduating at different times of the year.
