Flexible Options for Future Physical Therapists

Physical therapy (PT) is a growing health care profession that provides opportunity for autonomy in patient care, flexibility in choosing a practice setting or specialty (e.g. acute care, outpatient care, home health, private practice), and the environment to interact with people to help improve their physical performance and ability to function independently.

The University of Michigan PT program is located at the University of Michigan-Flint. This nationally recognized, rigorous academic program is offered in several tracks, including one of the few PT PhD programs in the country. Through hands-on learning experiences and opportunities to engage with the community through such programs as PT Heart, graduates are prepared for a wide range of careers and care for those seeking assistance from PT professionals.
