Observation Hours/Clinical Experience
There is no specific number of clinical hours
required, however, each applicant for the entry-level DPT program
is expected to have thoroughly investigated the scope and
profession of physical therapy. Applicants' understanding of the
profession will be considered in their essay (part of the School of
Graduate Studies application) and interview.
While there is no specific form required to document time in
physical therapy settings, we highly recommend that applicants keep
track of their hours/locations in some format. Applicants selected
for an interview will be asked to submit a resume and this
information should be included in the resume.
