Each year the faculty performs a thorough review of the strengths, weaknesses, limitations, and opportunities for our curriculum. We seek feedback from students, alumni, and employers, review national trends in physical therapy education and consider students' performance in classroom, clinic, and the National Physical Therapy Examination. Based on this information, the faculty decided to implement a revised curriculum.
The biggest change in the curriculum is the addition of a six week summer session between the first and second year of the program. Classes from the spring semester first year and fall semester second year were revised and some materials shifted to the summer session. This will help decrease the workload in two busy semesters and allow for better use of the summer.
After the six week session, students will then complete their three week clinical rotation. Students will still have four weeks away from the classroom during the summer. The program will retain its two and one half year length and 35 weeks of clinical experiences over seven different experiences. Students in the incoming class will be the first to experience the revised curriculum. More details on the revised curriculum can be found on our website.
