Consistent with the mission of Nazareth College and the mission of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), the Nazareth College of Rochester Physical Therapy Program prepares physical therapists dedicated to lifelong learning, reflection, and accountability, who are grounded in intellectual, ethical, and aesthetic values. The program will prepare professionals who are committed to meeting community health needs through engagement and service. The program graduate will possess the adaptive competence necessary to provide sound patient care, as well as preventive, educational, administrative, and consultative services that respect individuality.
- BS/DPT Program (6-year, undergraduate-graduate)
The BS/DPT Physical Therapy program is a six-year program comprised of three pre-professional years focused on Nazareth College's core curriculum plus three professional years focused on clinical experience. The advantage of this program is that, as long as students maintain the required grade point average, they do not have to reapply for a graduate program.
- DPT Program (3-year, graduate)
The D.P.T. degree in Physical Therapy builds on a foundation of pre-requisites with contemporary, relevant professional education in physical therapy. In this professional three-year program, you’ll combine classroom studies with hands-on clinical experiences.
The Nazareth College of Rochester Physical Therapy (PT) Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE).
