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 50 weeks of 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. Return to footnote reference
