Physical Therapy

Are you interested in a career in physical therapy? Would you like to receive your preparation and degree from an institution that values community service and leadership? Is a collegial relationship between students and faculty important to you? Would you like to be engaged in meaningful hands-on practice with patients and clients beginning in your very first semester? Are you eager to engage with faculty who are clinical experts and committed to your professional development?

If community service, clinical excellence, leadership, and professional engagement are part of your personal values, Widener’s Institute of Physical Therapy Education doctoral program may be the right program for you. Apply online via PTCAS.

Widener allows you to give back to your community by being involved in a student-run pro bono clinic that offers physical therapy services to individuals who would otherwise be unable to receive them. You can receive your doctoral degree from a program with long-established relationships among the leading healthcare providers in the region, opening the doors to physical therapy jobs.

You can expect to complete your degree after three years of full-time study, which includes four clinical education experiences under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist. Our graduate program prepares competent clinicians for contemporary practice.

If you are looking to take your career to the next level in physical therapy, Widener University has the program for you.
