Physical Therapy Program
Admission into the Doctor of Physical Therapy program (DPT) is very competitive. Factors considered for admission include completion of a bachelor’s degree and program prerequisites, academic performance, Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores, knowledge of the physical therapy profession, and a personal interview. The DPT curriculum of Georgia State University demands rigorous scholarly effort. We welcome students with different strengths and backgrounds to the program.
The doctoral program in Kinesiology and Health with a concentration in Rehabilitation Science is a 49-semester hour program. The concentration in Rehabilitation Science is only open to students currently enrolled in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program in the Byrdine F. Lewis College of Nursing and Health Professions. The program is designed to augment the existing DPT program to prepare physical therapists to teach and conduct research in areas related to physical rehabilitation, biomechanics, physiology, etc.
