Program Details

The University of Kentucky (UK) offers a hybrid Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. The hybrid environment of this course offers students increased flexibility and convenience of attending certain portions of the class during their free time. This program is designed for currently licensed physical therapists to pursue their Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree.

The curriculum provides students with advanced knowledge and expertise needed in entry-level positions and offers opportunities to improve in many areas of specific skills and interests. The curriculum may allow students to tweak many class activities towards their interests.

The University of Kentucky requires students to complete 14 credit hours in order to graduate from the program. Students will take a variety of courses including Integration of Evidence Based Practice, Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, Complex Patient I & II, and much more. Due to the hybrid nature of this course, students are required to attend class on-campus at least two to three times a semester.

Students that are accepted into the professional program must complete all the pre-requisite courses before the start of classes. Students will apply to the program using the Physical Therapist Centralized Application Service (PTCAS) to help with the admissions process.
