Entry-Level Doctor of Physical Therapy Program

first pt class

Welcome to Stony Brook University's Entry-Level Clinical Doctorate in Physical Therapy Program at both Stony Brook and Southampton Campuses.

The same high quality of education that has been delivered by Stony Brook's Physical Therapy Program over the past four decades has been extended to the Southampton campus. Increased resources in the form of additional faculty, space, equipment, services and finances have been allotted to sustain excellence in the program at both campuses.
Stony Brook's Physical Therapy Program enjoys a rich history spanning over 40 years and 1,500 graduates. The program develops leaders of the profession who demonstrate evidence based practice, critical inquiry and clinical decision making skills needed for differential diagnosis and autonomous practice. Our graduates are prepared to provide direct patient care in a multitude of physical therapy settings as well as to pursue careers in research, administration, or education.

For detailed information regarding student outcomes, including graduation rates, pass rates on the national licensing exam, and employment rates, see our FAQs page.
We invite you to visit us when you are in the area, and attend one of our monthly Information Sessions and make an appointment to meet a faculty member for further advisement.

If you do not find the answers to your questions, please contact us for additional information. We look forward to assisting you in this process.
