Why Choose Samuel Merritt University for your DPT?
The Doctor of Physical Therapy program prepares graduates to excel in serving patients as generalist physical therapists, capable of autonomous practice in the health care system. During our 33-month program, students progressively build clinical reasoning skills with increasingly complex patient presentations through both academic and clinical courses. Our curriculum features simulated and actual clinical practice opportunities integrated within and between academic trimesters, beginning in the first trimester and continuing throughout the program.
