The Department of Clinical & Applied Movement Sciences at the Brooks College of Health offers one doctoral graduate degree, the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT).
Physical therapists are health professionals who work with individuals in preventing, evaluating, and treating physical dysfunction and injury. An understanding of human movement serves as the foundation for the practice of physical therapy.
The Physical Therapy program at the University of North Florida (UNF) provides graduates with the knowledge and skills to become generalist practitioners of the highest caliber. Physical therapists are graduates of an accredited physical therapy program who have passed a licensure examination. UNF's Physical Therapy program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), and graduates are eligible to take the national licensure examination.The professional curriculum, all of which takes place at the doctoral level, consists of approximately 102 credit hours taken over eight semesters. Applicants must comply with all requirements and procedures of the University of North Florida related to admission to graduate level programs.
The number of students admitted each year will be determined by the Brooks College of Health, in consultation with PT program faculty, and with consideration given to the resources available to the program, the quality and size of the applicant pool, and current market conditions. Students who meet minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission to the program. Normally, 30 students will be admitted to the program each year.
