The Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree is a post-baccalaureate degree that prepares graduates to enter the profession of physical therapy. The UMHB DPT program is a competitive-admissions 28 month program (7 semesters), and the first cohort began in Fall 2015. The application deadline for Fall 2018 is March 1, 2018.
The DPT program will guide students from diverse backgrounds and cultural experiences to become doctorally prepared clinicians in physical therapy. Our curriculum will provide students with opportunities to develop knowledge, skills and competence in professional practice, patient/client management, and practice management utilizing classroom, lab and clinical experiences. Our program and faculty embody the values of UMHB as a Christian institution.
