Physical Therapy & Health Science

Welcome to Bradley University’s Department of Physical Therapy and Health Science!

Approximately 60 of our Health Science majors are planning a May graduation and are beginning to receive employment and graduate school offers. Many students have already accepted offers to begin post-baccalaureate studies in occupational therapy, physical therapy, medicine, physician assistant, and other areas of focus.

The Doctor of Physical Therapy Class of 2014 are out on their last final 16 weeks of clinical education. Students are completing this vital component of their education in a total of 30 various institutions spread across Illinois as well as sites in Indiana and California.

Congratulations to five faculty members who along with 10 of our third year DPT students presented a mix of poster and platform presentations at the American Physical Therapy Association Combined Sections Meeting last month in Las Vegas.
