Master of Science in Physical Therapy

Maryville’s Doctor of Physical Therapy Program is a six and one-half year freshman-entry program. Acceptance into the program as a freshman assures the student a place in the professional portion of the program if the student maintains satisfactory academic progress in the program. Students earn an undergraduate degree in Health Science upon successfully completing the first four years of the program. Physical therapists are “movement specialists” who aim to prevent the onset or slow the progression of conditions resulting from injury, disease and other causes. As a physical therapist, students will work with clients to reduce pain, increase mobility and improve function. Students will learn to assess joint motion, muscle strength and endurance, function of heart and lungs and performance of activities required in daily living.
