Physical Therapy

In 2000, the American Physical Therapy Association raised the bar beyond the master' s degree —requiring that all licensed physical therapists have a doctorate by 2020. Simmons was among the first in the nation to revise its program and help our profession attain this goal. We offer two tracks leading to a doctorate in physical therapy (D.P.T.) degree: our highly regarded professional (entry- level) doctoral program, and the D.P.T. Bridge Program, a post-professional online program designed for experienced clinical practitioners.
