Physical Therapy

Are you interested in a career in physical therapy? Would you like to receive your degree and training from one of the first ten physical therapy schools in the United States to offer the Doctor of Physical Therapy degree?

If yes, 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 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 health-care providers in the region, opening the doors to physical therapy jobs.

You’ll work with a faculty that possesses a wealth of clinical experience in virtually all types of physical therapy practice settings.

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

We believe that individual and cultural differences bring important variety to perspectives on health, illness, and disability. At Widener, you will find diversity in the classroom among students and faculty in terms of age, ethnicity, years of experience, work history, and clinical specialization.

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