Doctor of Physical Therapy

Help people rebuild and maintain their health and independence

The Campbell University Department of Physical Therapy Program’s mission is to graduate doctors of physical therapy who deliver compassionate, patient-centered care from a service-oriented, Christian guided view, with a special emphasis on rural healthcare environments.

Innovative New Curriculum

The DPT program will launch a new version of our curriculum in the summer semester of 2025. Students will begin coursework in the summer and graduate 31 months later in December. The updated curriculum leverages the strengths of our existing program while allowing students to enter the workforce sooner. Our program is designed for an immersive experience where students have regular, in-person contact with peers, faculty, and patients throughout the curriculum. Our highly accessible faculty focus on helping each student develop into exceptional physical therapists capable of providing quality care to anyone, anywhere.
