Doctor of Physical Therapy

Bradley University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) was instituted in 2005 after offering a Master’s degree in physical therapy from 2000 through 2005. The Doctor of Physical Therapy comprises 105 credit hours offered over three years. Academic coursework consists of basic and applied sciences along with other courses that prepare the graduate as an autonomous practitioner. Included in the 105 credit hours are 35 weeks of full time clinical rotations. Clinical sites are available throughout the Midwest along with opportunities across the country for students to pursue.
