Degree Conferred: Doctor of Physical Therapy

Contents


Overview

The Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) is offered for those entering the profession of physical therapy. The DPT is a full-time, 9-semester program. Students enroll in the program in summer. The first six semesters are on campus, and during the final three semesters, all students will participate in clinical experiences located within and outside of southeast Wisconsin.

The program is a sequenced, competency-based curriculum; students matriculate through the curriculum by demonstrating readiness for clinical practice. Rubrics for determining readiness are found on the DPT program website (www.dpt.uwm.edu) and minimally require students to pass all comprehensive examinations, demonstrate professional development, and maintain academic standards consistent with program expectations.

The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), 1111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, Virginia 22314; telephone: 703-706-3245; e-mail: accreditation@apta.org; Web site: www.capteonline.org.

Admission

Admission to the program is highly competitive. A snapshot of the typical successful applicant is available on the program Web site's Frequently Asked Questions page. The DPT program enrolls students through the Physical Therapy Centralized Application Service (PTCAS: www.ptcas.org). Policies and procedures related to consideration of the candidate are published on the PTCAS website and updated annually. Students apply to the UWM Graduate School after being recommended for Admission by the DPT program. Undergraduate degree and prerequisite coursework must be completed by the time the student enrolls in the DPT Program.

An applicant must meet Graduate School requirements plus these program requirements to be considered for admission to the program:

Selection

The program will enroll 24 students. Students are selected based on GPA, GRE scores, two letters of recommendation (one academic reference, one personal reference), and narratives. The program will give preference to candidates with pre-requisite requirements completed at the time of application to the program.

Major Professor as Advisor

The Graduate School requires that each student have a major professor to advise, supervise and approve the program of study. Students are assigned faculty advisors in the DPT program. Faculty advisors are core members of the DPT program faculty who are also licensed or eligible for licensure in the state of Wisconsin.

Credits and Courses

The program is a sequenced, competency-based curriculum of 121 credits including 36 weeks of internship in the final year of the program. Students will enroll as full time students for each term of study (Summer, Fall, Spring) and will enroll during UWinteriM of their first year in the program. There is no part-time option for students, nor can courses be taken out of sequence in the DPT program.
