Students can best prepare for applying to programs for a doctorate of physical therapy degree (D.P.T.) by earning a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Biology, Clinical Health Sciences or Exercise Science at Simpson College. Students are required to obtain a significant number of hours observing licensed physical therapists before enrolling in graduate programs.
Faculty in the Biology and Sport Science Departments will assist students in planning for these pre-professional programs by identifying required and recommended coursework and supervise undergraduate research, internships and observational experiences.
