The residential Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program at the USC Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy has a long history of exceeding the minimum required educational preparation for individuals pursuing a professional career as a physical therapist. The first school to offer a master’s and a Ph.D. degree in physical therapy, USC was also a leader in graduating the first DPT class in the United States.
The Division has been ranked number one by U.S. News & World Report since the ranking began in 2004, which can be attributed to USC’s strong research enterprise, clinical practices, and residency programs to enhance the DPT educational experience.
Our graduates are knowledgeable, self-assured, adaptable, reflective, and service-oriented practitioners.
