Doctor of Physical Therapy B.S./D.P.T. Program
The Pathway to Health Professions (Health Sciences) Program and the programs in physical therapy and rehabilitation sciences of the College of Nursing and Health Professions offer an accelerated dual-degree program that can put you in practice a year and a half ahead of your future colleagues—and with better training. Participants can earn both a B.S. degree in health sciences and a doctor of physical therapy (D.P.T.) degree in only 5-1/2 years after graduation from high school. Graduates of this innovative program are able to function in a variety of healthcare settings and are well prepared to seek licensure by state board examination.
Drexel’s D.P.T. program—the new standard in physical therapy education—is the successor to the former MCP Hahnemann University’s Master of Physical Therapy (M.P.T.) Program. The D.P.T. program is fully accredited by the American Physical Therapy Association’s Commission on Accreditation of Physical Therapy Education and has been since the existence of the program.
