Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science


The University of Maryland School of Medicine Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science develops physical therapist practitioners and scholars to restore physical function and performance, prevent physical injury and disease, and promote physical wellness.

We accomplish this through excellence and leadership in education, research and service. 

The department offers an entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy degree and a Ph.D. in Physical Rehabilitation Science

Our students are a culturally and geographically diverse population with a variety of academic backgrounds.

If you would like to become a part of this history of excellence, please see the links on the left for information on applying to our program, becoming one of our instructors or making a gift to scholarship or development funds related to our department.
