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 a 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.
