About

As an integral part of Chatham University, the Physical Therapy Program educates doctors of physical therapy who will advance the quality of human life through excellence in clinical practice. 

Overview

The Program educates autonomous practitioners who will meet the challenges of a dynamic health care environment and supports scholarly activity that bridges science and clinical practice.

The programme

Chatham University’s entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program is a clinical doctorate degree designed to prepare its graduates for practice in physical therapy at the successful completion of seven terms of study. The DPT program stresses clinical decision-making through the study of patient problems typically encountered in the clinical setting. The problem-based learning curriculum presents physical therapy in an integrated manner organized around body systems. The curriculum stresses the importance of evidence-based practice and professionalism throughout the student's learning experience.

In 2017, DPT alumni and faculty, Raj Sawhney and Steve Gough, created the Sawhney-Gough Clinical Excellence Scholarship. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide recognition and financial assistance to a second-year Physical Therapy student at Chatham University's School of Health Sciences. Students must meet GPA requirements, be members of the American Physical Therapy Association, and submit an essay discussing the importance of clinical communication, professionalism, and service activities. Applications are accepted during the fall semester of the second year in the program.
