DPT Physical Therapy

You’ll graduate with the knowledge and experience needed to help people regain mobility and health.

As a physical therapist, you will use your skills and expertise to work with patients to optimize movement, promote health and wellness, mitigate the progression of impairments, and prevent additional disability.

The doctor of physical therapy curriculum is organized around carefully designed patient or professional practice problems that students study, discuss, and research in small groups. As a result, students graduate with the experience, confidence, and communication skills needed for a successful career.

The DPT is a clinical doctoral degree and is the entry-level degree for professional practice. The program is three years in length, including eight to 10 weeks of full-time clinical work in each of the summers between the first and second years.‌

The 3+3 or 4+3 Accelerated Undergraduate Pathway to DPT options allow undergraduates the opportunity to complete an undergraduate degree and a doctorate graduate degree in physical therapy in either six or seven years.  For more information regarding the 3+3 and 4+3 pathways, contact Christopher Petrosino, PT, Ph.D., at petrosinoc@sacredheart.edu or 203-396-8078.
