Physical Therapy Schools and Colleges

Physical therapists hold postgraduate degrees. After completing a physical therapy postgraduate program, graduates obtain a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree, but some graduates complete less school to be awarded a Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) degree. It usually takes 3 years to complete a doctoral program in physical therapy, while it only takes 2-3 years to earn a master’s degree. Students are typically required to hold a bachelor’s degree and complete prerequisites in chemistry, biology, physiology, and anatomy prior to being admitted to a physical therapy graduate program.

Students enrolled in physical therapy graduate programs take classes in pharmacology, neuroscience, physiology, anatomy, and biomechanics. Students enrolled in physical therapy programs are required to complete clinical rotations to obtain clinical experience under the direct supervision of licensed physical therapists.

After graduating from a physical therapy graduate program, you can apply for residencies. It typically takes 9 months – 3 years to complete a residency, depending on specialty.
