Physical Therapy

We know that potential PT students like you require a high-quality educational program you can trust, one that will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need for a successful career in physical therapy. That’s exactly what you’ll find here at the Division of Physical Therapy, where well-respected faculty members are committed to helping you achieve your goals.

We also know that program cost is an important factor, so we offer unsurpassed quality at a cost well below the national average for physical therapy programs. The chart below clearly demonstrates our quality and value.

The OHIO PT program takes pride in being ranked in the top 20% of physical therapy programs nationally (US News and World Report, 2016), and our first-time pass rate is actually higher than programs in the top 5%. In addition, our graduates score higher on the NPTE exam than other schools in the areas of Foundations for Evaluation, Differential Diagnosis and Prognosis and Physical Therapy Examination. Our graduates also score higher on the NPTE exam than the national average in all areas of the NPTE exam.

Quality and affordability…the choice is clear!
