Designed for practicing physical therapists, the transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) is an innovative, 100% online program. Integrating art and science, as well as professional and experiential education, the degree curriculum provides you with the necessary knowledge base for today’s doctorally prepared practitioners.
Core courses within this physical therapy doctoral program include differential diagnosis and medical screening, diagnostic imaging, pharmacology, nutrition, and motor control. The capstone course, Comprehensive Case Analysis, is a culmination of all work within the transitional DPT curriculum. Students will prepare a comprehensive and publishable case report or other scholarly work in partial fulfillment of the requirement for a transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree.
The transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy also includes concentrations in a variety of areas such as orthopedics, pediatrics, geriatrics, advanced nutrition, women’s health, education, and business management. If you have a unique concentration interest, you may also complete a directed study on a pre-approved topic of your choosing.
