The residential Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program is a three-year, full-time program.
The systems-based curriculum integrates lecture and laboratory experiences on campus and a total of 44 weeks of full-time equivalent clinical experiences that begin in the first year. Through corresponding coursework and clinical rotations, students develop their knowledge and expertise in each area alongside USC’s globally recognized faculty.
1 Note: The Full-Time Clinical Education Experience can occur in either the fifth or sixth semester. The Director of Clinical Education determines when each student completes the integrated or full-time terminal clinical education experience.
