Doctor of Physical Therapy
We train physical therapists who are as compassionate as they are capable. If that's what you're looking for, explore our program and learn how in three years you can become a highly skilled, sought-after physical therapist who provides hands-on patient care and specializes in movement and movement dysfunction.
Choosing the Right DPT Program Makes All the Difference
Our CAPTE accredited, intensive, clinically-oriented, integrated curriculum provides a strong foundation in the basic and clinical sciences before progressing to more complex integration and application. Our small class size of 35 students ensures that you get the attention you need to succeed in the program. All DPT candidates also complete a research project and 38 weeks of clinical experiences.
Our faculty includes specialists in neurology, orthopedics, pediatrics, and cardiopulmonary physical therapy, all of whom bring the “clinic to the classroom” every day. Because of our small class sizes, your professors can offer you one-on-one guidance, advising, and mentoring as you cultivate the critical thinking, professionalism, and evidence-based practice skills that set Touro graduates apart.
Diverse Clinical Experiences
Our students complete four full-time clinical experiences in diverse settings in the tri-state area and nationwide, including nationally renowned hospitals, nursing facilities, private practices, rehabilitation centers, schools, and home care. You will be ready to practice in whichever setting you choose, and to stay current in an ever-changing health care environment. Our graduates have secured great positions in major hospitals, health systems and clinics. Whatever your passion and area of focus, we can help you make a career of it.
The DPT program is offered in two location, both easily accessible by mass transit. The New York City is in the heart of Manhattan, across from Madison Square Garden, and the Bay Shore campus is located on the South Shore of Long Island not far from beaches and Fire Island. Classes at Bay Shore are held Monday through Friday, while classes in Manhattan are Sunday through Thursday. Both campuses share the same curriculum, and faculty from both campuses collaborate to design the ultimate teaching and learning experience.
