There are common prerequisite courses you have to take to be admitted to physical therapy school, and several majors will allow you to take these prerequisite courses within the major.

Doctor of Physical Therapy programs expect students to not only have a strong academic record, but also have a strong record of leadership and service outside of the classroom. 学生s should seek out service opportunities both at the college and in the broader community that demonstrate a desire to help others with compassion and empathy. 此外, students should demonstrate the ability to be a leader in different environments, 建立清晰的个人成熟度.

Doctor of Physical Therapy programs expect students to have strong letters of evaluations, vouching for the student’s academic aptitude and overall motivation. 这取决于项目, it is required or recommended that at least one of these letters comes from a college professor under which the student has studied. 在本笃学院, because of small class sizes and professor-guided service and research opportunities, students have numerous opportunities to interact one-on-one with professors. This builds relationships that will not only help with recommendation letter writing, but will provide sustainable professional relationships that will provide a basis of community learning during a student’s undergraduate career and beyond.
