The Department of Physical Therapy is grounded in the liberal arts and sciences tradition of Mount St. Joseph University. We help students develop into proficient, caring, responsible and well-rounded physical therapists.

The Doctor of Physical Therapy is a comprehensive degree that prepares clinicians to:

  • Think critically and solve problems.
  • Apply scientifically validated therapeutic skills and techniques effectively.
  • Respect the uniqueness, dignity and diversity of the individual.
  • Understand the responsibilities of the health care provider in the 21st Century.
