Physical Therapy Program
UAA is investigating a collaborative arrangement with another university to provide a physical therapy program in Anchorage. Right now we are in the early stages and do not have an agreement with any particular university.
This program would likely be a professional doctorate in physical therapy (DPT). The DPT, awarded upon completion of a physical therapist professional education program, is an entry-level degree, and is intended for individuals who are not already PTs. Although not yet determined, the program will likely take 3.5 to 4 years to complete at the rate of approximately 9-12 credits per semester. After successful completion of the degree, you would receive a DPT from the university that is providing the program, and you would be eligible to sit for licensure exams.
