Pre-Physical Therapy


The curriculum in pre-physical therapy is designed to prepare students for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and entrance into a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program. Course prerequisites for admission vary significantly across DPT programs. The most commonly required prerequisite coursework typically includes one-year sequences of general biology with lab, general chemistry with lab, general physics with lab, anatomy and physiology with lab, in addition to statistics, general psychology, English composition, humanities and social science courses. Students are strongly encouraged to work closely with their advisor when selecting appropriate coursework. Admission to physical therapy schools is highly competitive based on scholastic standing. Involvement in co-curricular activities such as internships, research and volunteering is recommended.
