Physical Therapy

With a first-time pass rate and graduation rate that is the same as the programs in the top 5% (U.S. News and World Report) at a fraction of the cost, the choice is clear. 

The Ohio University physical therapy program takes pride in being ranked in the top 25% of physical therapy programs nationally (U.S. News and World Report, 2020). The OHIO PT graduates score considerably higher than the national average on the NPTE systems areas (cardiopulmonary, integumentary, musculoskeletal, and neuromuscular), as well as Evaluation, Differential Diagnosis and Prognosis, Interventions, and Non-system domains content areas.

We know that potential physical therapy 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. In addition, we offer 5-6 graduate assistantship positions (full tuition waiver and stipend) and several part-time graduate assistantship positions (one-half tuition waiver and stipend) per year.
