Physical Therapy (Doctorate)

Attend our next graduate open house.

Post Baccalaureate Entry into the DPT Program

The program mission of the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program (DPT) is to graduate competent, ethical and autonomous physical therapists that value practice, research, and life long learning. Faculty and graduates appreciate diversity and collaboration and take proactive roles in the community and the health care system.

Our faculty is made up of expert clinicians with doctoral degrees who are committed to advancing the profession of physical therapy and mentoring those who will become the new professionals of tomorrow.  With an optimal class size of 35 students, our faculty to student ratio is 1:12. This smaller class size allows the faculty to devote more attention to students and to get to know them and their educational needs.

The DPT is a 3-year, full-time program. It includes content and process-based courses, starting with a core of foundational science courses, clinical content/lab courses, and applied clinical integration courses. Emphasis is placed on clinical decision making, research design, and functional outcomes.

Accreditation The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at the University of Hartford is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) 1111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, VA 22314, tel: 703.706.3245; email: accreditation@apta.org; website: http://www.capteonline.org.
