Physical Therapy

We know that potential physical therapy (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.
