BS in Health Studies/Doctor of Physical Therapy

Boston University - Boston, MA

  • BS

The program in physical therapy leading to the Bachelor of Science in Health Studies and Doctor of Physical Therapy degrees is designed to educate graduates as generalists dedicated to the promotion of health and rehabilitation of people disabled by injury or disease. Physical therapists are moving beyond traditional settings and are assuming more responsibility for examination, evaluation, and treatment, as well as for administration, supervision of a variety of health care workers, teaching, consultation, and clinical research. The program reflects these professional needs. The essential components of physical therapy education include the development of a strong foundation in the basic sciences, synthesis of a body of applied scientific knowledge, the adoption of a professional code of ethics, the demonstration of a commitment to professional values, and the ability to communicate effectively, solve problems creatively, and to administer and evaluate treatment effectively and efficiently.
