Department of Physical Therapy
What better way to make a difference than physical therapy? The profession is effective and changes lives. And the need is increasing: The U.S. Dept. of Labor predicts that the U.S. will need 39% more physical therapists by 2020.
Our mission is to educate Doctor of Physical Therapy students to practice autonomously, yet collaboratively, within evolving, complex, and diverse healthcare environments. Graduates will be prepared to be lifelong learners and movement specialists that use evidence to optimize patient/client function and health.
