Pre-Professional Programs - Physical Therapy

Pre-Physical Therapy

Program description

The physical therapy professional (clinical) training programs at KUMC and WSU are both Doctor of Physical Therapy degree programs. A student must have a bachelor’s degree for admission. Therefore, a student interested in applying to these programs should pursue requirements for a degree at ESU as well as pre-physical therapy course requirements. Students are encouraged to choose a major in Biology with a concentration in Healthcare.

The courses are required for admission to professional physical therapy programs at the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) and Wichita State University (WSU). Students who are interested in physical therapy programs outside the state should write for information to the appropriate institution. Admission to schools of physical therapy is competitive and ESU cannot guarantee that students will be accepted. Students applying for these programs must have a strong GPA in their degree program. Students must also take the General Test of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). For current information, the student should consult with the pre-physical therapy advisor early in their career.
