Curriculum Pathway

This curriculum pathway will allow any BS to DPT student to complete their transition to a DPT in five semesters versus the current seven semester track. The total cost of the program is still the same (30 credits at $425 per credit) but enrolled students will be taking an average of 6-8 credits per semester.

All courses taken through this program are graduate level courses. 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.
