Pre-Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is a health care profession whose practitioners work as members of a multidisciplinary group of health personnel to help people overcome the effects of disease and injury and to prevent potential problems. Physical therapists treat their patients in a variety of settings such as private offices, nursing homes, home health agencies, public and private schools, academic institutions, and hospices. Physical therapists also work as educators, researchers, and consultants in a wide variety of organizations.

Students seeking admission to the field of physical therapy through a program in the Department of Science and Mathematics will major in Biology or Chemistry and must obtain a list of pre-requisites from their graduate physical therapy program choice to fulfill during their bachelor's degree program.
