Welcome to DPT

The Physical Therapy Program at the University of South Carolina offers students a unique opportunity to develop skills in an intimate learning environment. Small class size allows students an opportunity to get individualized instruction and closely interact with instructors. Students complete an independent research project focused on clinical practice and learn the value of evidence-based practice.

Students who complete the DPT program at the University of South Carolina have the option of applying, and if accepted, enroll in an accelerated PhD degree in one of three areas including Motor Rehabilitation, Applied Physiology, or Health Aspects of Physical Activity.
