Pre-Physical Therapy Studies and Advising

Marymount University offers opportunities to prepare for entry to Marymount’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program. The pre-professional requirements for this program can be met through a variety of undergraduate fields.

The Malek School of Health Professions outlines one option, through its Health Sciences major/Pre-Physical Therapy emphasis. The School of Arts and Sciences outlines another option, through its Biology major/Molecular and Cellular Biology track. However, students should consider majoring in the subject area in which they have the strongest aptitude and interest. An academic advisor can help students interested in preparing for entry to a Physical Therapy graduate program.

Further details about Marymount’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program can be found here. Special admission consideration is given to current Marymount students who have completed at least two full-time semesters at Marymount prior to applying, Marymount graduates, and persons from minority groups who are underrepresented in the profession.

A Pre-Physical Therapy plan of study is rigorous, and substantial academic discipline is needed to complete the coursework consistent with stated program prerequisites.
