Pre-Physical Therapy

The Pre-Physical Therapy Program serves students from any science major who are interested in pursuing a career as a physical therapist. The program ensures that students have access to the courses they need (over a 4 year time period) to meet their pre-professional requirements as well as providing support and guidance along the way.

We help our students develop the credentials that physical therapy schools are looking for:

  • demonstrated academic excellence in all course work, particularly the core biology, chemistry and physics
  • demonstration of a long-term, growing commitment to serving others
  • ability to balance a rigorous academic schedule with meaningful extracurricular activities
