BS Physical Therapy

The BS Physical Therapy program is designed to equip its graduates with entry-level competencies expected of a beginning professional physical therapist to continue the University's pioneering role in the delivery of health care services to the public. Specifically, the curriculum develops graduates who are knowledgeable, reflective, ethical, professional, and service-oriented who, by virtue of critical thinking, effective communication and lifelong learning, render independent judgments about developing, maintaining and restoring maximum movement and functional ability of a patient or client; and enhance the professional foundations for practice. These practitioners are expected to contribute to societal development and the profession through clinical practice, classroom and clinical teaching, administration, and the discovery and application of new knowledge about physical therapy.
