RUCamden 279c d0a6d

The new Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) 4+3 Program at Rutgers University will be welcoming its first class in the Fall of 2018. This program is run jointly between Rutgers–New Brunswick Department of Kinesiology and Health and the School of Health Professions Doctor of Physical Therapy Newark–North and Blackwood–South Programs. This program provides First Year students who are admitted to either the School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) or School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) the opportunity to begin preparing for a Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree from the moment they start their college education. Students are eligible to apply to this program after declaring Exercise Science as a major in the Spring of their First Year. This program is only open to First Year students. Unfortunately upperclassmen and transfer students are not eligible for this program. If you are a high school student interested in attending Rutgers and studying Physical Therapy, we invite you to explore our website and learn more about our program.
