We welcome the first class of 36 students, Class of 2015, to our new Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program!
The entry-level program for physical therapists is a three-year, year-round program. Most of the first two years will be spent in lecture and laboratory classes while the last year will be in clinical internship rotations.
Graduates shouldn’t have to worry about finding employment as job prospects for physical therapy graduates are high. The California Employment Development Department estimated that between 2008 and 2018, there will be an increased need of 4400 (29% increase) physical therapists in the state.
