Pre-Physical Therapy

Pre-Physical Therapy is one of the undergraduate concentrations offered by the Exercise Science Program.  Students who pursue this concentration earn the Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science degree. Typically, these students plan on pursuing a master's or doctoral program in Physical Therapy after completing their bachelor's degree. The Pre-Physical Therapy program is designed to prepare students for admission into UT's Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) degree program.  Thus, the curriculum has been designed to provide all of the courses required for admission into that program.  Through electives in the Pre-PT concentration, students have the opportunity to customize their curriculum to meet unique admission requirements that may be needed for PT programs at other universities. 

There are many factors that set the Exercise Science Program's Pre-PT concentration apart from those at other colleges and universities. These include state-of-the-art teaching labs, advanced training in human anatomy that includes experience in a cadaver lab, and an on-campus rehabilitation center in which to get clinical experience. There is no better place to prepare for a career in physical therapy than the University of Toledo's Exercise Science Program.
