Emory DPT Program

The Division of Physical Therapy has historically been a "top 10" physical therapy educational program and seen as a destination of choice for many prospective physical therapy students. This perspective has been nurtured through the unique design of the program that fosters exceptional skills, creativity, reflectivity, and humanity while instilling self-confidence as students transform into outstanding professionals by:

  • Fostering the skills of problem solving, interpersonal communication, and teaching-learning throughout the entire curriculum
  • Embedding clinical and ethical decision-making in clinical experiences within all aspects of the program
  • Understanding the nature and scope of physical therapy practice within the larger healthcare system in which it occurs
  • Providing research opportunities between faculty members and their students to nurture inquiry-based and evidence based practice
  • Encouraging independent judgment, innovative, competent and confident practitioners
