About Us

This is an exciting time for our department, which continues to prove itself as one of the premiere physical therapy education programs in the country for what is now 60 years after its inception.

Originally created in 1956 to provide a bachelor’s degree program in physical therapy, the department moved to a masters-level curriculum in 1991. In 2002, an entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy program (DPT) was established for students with bachelor degrees interested in pursuing careers in physical therapy.
