Post-Professional Doctor of Physical Therapy

Our Post-Professional DPT program provides options for all physical therapists seeking additional education.

  • If you are a current licensed physical therapist, but do not have your DPT, we have an excellent program for you, even if you’re working. Our program is for international therapists as well as those trained in the USA.
  • If you require courses to fill in an evaluation deficiency, we have non-degree classes for credit.
  • Our courses are now listed in the FCCPT (Foreign Credentialing Commission on Physical Therapy) plan.
  • We offer comprehensive courses from our degree program as continuing education credits, both in-person and online.

With our programs you can earn CEUs, maintain licensure requirements, and improve clinical proficiency, while learning with expert faculty, and at a much lower cost than regular tuition. We offer classes online, on campus and in hybrid format. Updated semester schedules are listed under each program option.

Our courses are taught by experienced faculty who are not only dedicated educators but also actively engaged in clinical practice, so you know you’re getting the most up-to-date and practical training possible. Explore what we offer:

The Post-Professional DPT degree program is a 30-credit graduate program usually completed in 2-4 semesters. Our classes are offered over 2-4 days, many begin on Sunday to avoid lost work time. In person courses are offered on our Long Island campus. This program is designed for the licensed and working therapist:

  1. USA-trained physical therapists: If you have already earned a bachelor's or master's degree in physical therapy, our post-professional DPT degree program is a great fit for you.
  2. Internationally trained physical therapists: If you earned your PT degree outside the United States and would like to earn your post-professional DPT degree, this program can help you get there.

The non-degree option offers courses that may appeal to clinicians interested in learning new information, fulfilling deficits for licensure or credentialing, or if you're looking to get back into a school environment. These courses are for credit but do not lead to a degree. They are offered online in about 2-month sessions (there are some in-person options). Transfer credit is available for therapists who may want to move into the degree program. International physical therapists may take these classes to fulfill the FCCPT content and credit deficiencies.

Expand your knowledge, stay current in the ever-evolving field of physical therapy, and meet your CEU requirements with our continuing education courses. Continuing education courses are open to physical therapists (PT) and physical therapist assistants (PTA).
