Doctor of Physical Therapy

Bradley University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) was instituted in 2005 after offering a Master’s degree in physical therapy from 2000 through 2005. The Doctor of Physical Therapy comprises 105 credit hours offered over three years. Academic coursework consists of basic and applied sciences along with other courses that prepare the graduate as an autonomous practitioner. Included in the 105 credit hours are 36 weeks of full time clinical rotations. Clinical sites are available throughout the Midwest along with opportunities across the country for students to pursue.

DPT Open House

A DPT Open House is held each semester. The next Open House is scheduled for Saturday, April 1, from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm in room 116 of Westlake Hall on the Bradley University campus. This is an opportunity to:

  • See our campus
  • Meet and interact with the faculty
  • Talk with current students
  • Chat with alumni of our program
  • Ask questions about the program, curriculum, clinical sites, associated cost, and the admissions process

This open house is limited to college sophomores, juniors, seniors, and to those applying to the DPT class that will begin in June of 2018. Because of limited seating, we request that each prospective student register for the Open House. Online registration will be available at this site in February. Please check back then to register.

Light refreshments will be served.
