Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions offers a limited-residency transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy (tDPT) program with an emphasis in pediatric science. The tDPT in pediatrics is a three-semester program with an optional 4th semester to complete an individualized Pediatric Science capstone project. The limited-residency transitional DPT program is designed to provide meaningful and obtainable post-professional education while addressing the public’s need for high-quality physical therapy service. We do this by providing practicing clinicians with opportunities to develop knowledge, skills, and behaviors commensurate with evidence-based practice.
The Rocky Mountain University transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy program is a blended learning-model, which allows physical therapists with a bachelor’s or master’s degree to pursue a post-professional clinical doctorate without having to relocate.
