Bradley’s doctor of physical therapy is a three-year program that prepares you for your first professional steps.
Bradley’s DPT program, ranked as one of the nation’s best by U.S. News and World Report, immerses you in professional settings while you take courses. As part of the program, you spend 36 weeks in clinicals in a range of settings. Clinical opportunities are available throughout the Midwest and across the country. Additionally, you can participate in a yearlong orthopedic residency for Bradley DPT graduates. Through mentorship and clinical experience, the residency readies you for the physical therapist specialty exam that may otherwise take several years of preparation.
The doctor of physical therapy successfully prepares you to enter the workforce. In recent years, all students found employment within six months of graduation. They’re working throughout the country at places such as Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, the University of Michigan and Easter Seals.
