This week, we welcome nearly 150 DPT students to USC. On Thursday, the new students put on their white coats for the first time and took an oath to uphold the professionalism and clinical excellence befitting a USC physical therapist. Click here for more about the class.
The unique partnership aims to prepare traditionally underrepresented students to enter USC’s top-ranked doctor of physical therapy program.
With the advent of the new DPT@USC hybrid program, which began this summer, there are now two educational paths that ultimately converge into a USC doctor of physical therapy degree.
