Think critically, act professionally, serve altruistically
More than 120,000 physical therapists are licensed in the U.S., treating nearly 1 million people every day. Alvernia University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program aspires to develop "ethical leaders with moral courage,” prepared to assume a leadership role in addressing the health-related concerns society faces. Physical therapists make a positive difference among those with mobility impairments by helping to prevent, restore or resolve dysfunctional conditions.
Alvernia’s DPT program utilizes a state-of-the-art facility, featuring Anatomage Virtual Dissection tables, a research lab with motion analysis system, a real-time ultrasound unit, a split-belt treadmill, surface electromyography and accelerometers.
