DOCTOR OF PHYSICAL THERAPY PROGRAM

HYBRID. ACCELERATED.

HAWAI‘I’S FIRST.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Hawai‘i Pacific University Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program is hybrid, accelerated, and the first of its kind in Hawai‘i. Students complete the HPU DPT Program in two years, faster than the 30-36 months it takes to graduate from most traditional DPT programs. This means graduates are in the clinic treating patients and earning an income sooner.

 

The HPU DPT experience includes the best of online distance education, hands-on lab immersion on HPU's beautiful campus, and 32 weeks of full-time clinical experiences. Students take no more than four courses during each 8-week academic term to optimize learning.
