Pre-Physical Therapy

Physical therapists examine, diagnose, and treat patients that have a variety of musculoskeletal, cardiac, neurological, and pulmonary problems. They carry out programs to help increase a patient's strength and flexibility, to relieve pain, and to help limit permanent physical disabilities. Most physical therapy degree programs are now at the doctoral level. We strongly recommend that students complete the B.S. Health Sciences degree then transfer to a physical therapy program where they earn a doctoral (D.PT) degree. These programs are usually 3 years in length. Bloomsburg students have been admitted to many different schools.
