The Department of Physical Therapy at Baylor University seeks to advance societal health through innovative education, connection, inquiry, and leadership in physical therapy. We offer an innovative hybrid Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program as well as an Orthopedic Physical Therapy Residency program.
The innovative Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program combines best practices in distance education, on-campus lab immersion sessions, and clinical education experiences to prepare you as a physical therapist and servant leader in this vital profession.
Through the 12-month Baylor Scott & White-Baylor University Orthopedic Physical Therapy Residency, residents work across two different orthopedic practice settings (outpatient and sports) while serving as adjunct faculty in Baylor's DPT program.
"I strongly believe that the mentorship and leadership associated with the program will help me elevate my patient care above what I can do on my own."
"Our professors are very energetic, passionate, and lively. Every professor that we have is certified in that specific specialty, so we get the best of the best."
"In lab immersions you rub shoulders with faculty and students all day, and you get a sense for the culture of what PT really is. It's a transformative time."
