- Bradley University also has 300-400 students majoring in Health Science. This baccalaureate program leads to eligibility into the DPT program and other professional programs in the healthcare field.
Employers should bring information about summer externships - undergraduates will be looking for this. Because the ratio of nursing students to physical therapy students is 3 to 1, the number of agencies recruiting only for physical therapists will be limited to 25. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first serve basis. You will receive an e-mail confirming your registration within a few days of submission.
