Foreign Licensed Non-Degree Seeking

Partnering with an accredited university

Rehab Essentials has partnered with the University of Montana (UM) to offer an avenue for Foreign-Trained therapists to meet deficiencies in their credentialing report by taking individual courses in the transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy (tDPT) program.  All courses taken through this program are graduate level courses.  Plus, the University of Montana is institutionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU).   While the tDPT coursework will assist toward the fulfillment of the educational requirements toward US licensure, it does not guarantee a US license. All PT’s seeking US PT licensure, must comply with all steps outlined by the FSBPT.
