A World-Class Program with Dr. Reed Humphrey and Dr. Jonathan Scheeler.

Be empowered. Move Your Career Forward.

The University of Montana’s post professional Transitional DPT program (tDPT) program, provides a critical career advancement pathway for therapists trained at foreign Universities. The innovative, world-class curriculum is taught by the best and brightest faculty. The contemporary 100% asynchronous online format engages you from virtually anywhere.
 

You have 24/7 online access to your courses and assignments when you are ready from virtually anywhere. Courses can be viewed and reviewed anytime within the semester. Deadlines and key dates for assignments, quizzes and exams are easily found in the course dashboard to keep you on track. And all with a budget-friendly tuition.

Designed with You In Mind.

This curriculum pathway will allow any BS-tDPT student residing in Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal or Sri Lanka  to complete their transition to a DPT in five semesters versus the current seven semester track. The total cost of the program is the same (30 credits at $250 per credit) but enrolled students will be taking an average of 6-8 credits per semester.

 

This track is for foreign trained therapists looking to attain a DPT and to either meet license requirements or continue to practice in their native country.  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 physical therapists seeking US PT licensure should follow all steps outlined by the FSBPT
