Majority of Current Licensed PTs Will Need to Earn the Transitional DPT

According to the U.S. Labor Department, it is estimated that 80+% of licensed physical therapists are practicing at the baccalaureate level.

"By the year 2020, physical therapy will be provided by Physical Therapists who are Doctors of Physical Therapy, recognized by consumers and other health care professionals as the practitioners of choice to whom consumers have direct access for the diagnosis of, interventions for, and prevention of impairments, functional limitations, and disabilities related to movement function and health." - APTA House of Delegates, June 2000

Licensed Physical Therapists now have the opportunity to earn a post-professional Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at Utica College through this innovative online program. Courses are all taught by qualified and experienced clinicians and are taken online in addition to one campus residency.

About the tDPT Program

Our online Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy program is designed to accommodate your demanding work and home-life schedules by giving you the flexibility to access the finest curriculum available wherever you are in the world.

Designed specifically for licensed physical therapy professionals with BS/MS degree credentials, the online tDPT curriculum covers a wide range of topics to include:

  • Foundations of Autonomous Practice
  • Prevention and Wellness
  • Diagnostic Imaging

  • Global Health Care Issues

At Utica College, you will be taught and mentored by qualified and experienced clinicians with real world experience. The online tDPT program is competitively priced and our online classes are small, allowing students and faculty to work together closely in a virtual atmosphere designed to promote personal and professional development.

The tDPT reflects the culmination of a comprehensive program and the fulfillment of the highest standards of clinical performance in professional practice, and prepares you to thrive as an autonomous practitioner in an evolving society and direct-access healthcare environment. Our curriculum is designed to augment your current knowledge, gained through a traditional physical therapy education (prior to the advent of doctoral-level preparation), with content that is now included in entry-level preparation. It builds on the skills, knowledge, and experience of practicing clinicians and entitles graduates to the title of Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT).
