Faculty work closely with students in the classroom, mentor students to help them explore career paths, and include them in research efforts in the community and in our Movement Science Lab.
Our new state-of-the-art Health Pavilion offers excellent resources for our physical therapy and pre-physical therapy students. Opened in August of 2015, the Health Pavilion offers new classrooms, research laboratories, space for community members to receive health care, study space and food options.
Students interested in becoming a physical therapist will need to attain a degree beyond their bachelor’s. Students interested in pursuing our competitive Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program should seriously consider attending UIndy for their undergraduate studies. The most popular degrees for students planning to attend physical therapy school include exercise science, human biology, psychology and public health education. UIndy students have the option of utilizing our 3 + 3 program in which students complete all of their undergraduate work in three years and start the Doctor of Physical Therapy program during their fourth year at UIndy. Academic advisors assist students in finding the right major, taking the right classes to get into physical therapy school, and staying on track for the 3 + 3 program.
