Leader in Physical Therapy
The University of Michigan-Flint has a rich history of preparing leaders in the Physical Therapy field. For nearly 40 years the campus has been offering PT degrees. We've evolved with the industry requirements; from bachelor's to master's to the current Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT), our PT programs have always been on the forefront in educational standards. And now, the Ph.D. in Physical Therapy adds to the U-M alumni population.
Our PT leadership continues with the Physical Therapy Bridge to Credentialing program. It is designed for students who have a physical therapy degree, but lack the requirements to obtain PT licensure in the United States, thus helping students fill their Foreign Credentialing Commission on Physical Therapy deficiencies. Students admitted to this program can take graduate courses without being formally admitted to a UM-Flint degree or certificate program.
- Internationally trained and educated physical therapists either licensed to practice or educated to practice
- Candidates can live in the United States or abroad who want to gain licensure to practice in the United States
The PT Bridge program is available 100% online, thus allowing students from around the globe access to the program.
*Completion of course work in this program does NOT confirm eligibility to sit for licensure in US. The decision to grant a license is at the discretion of the jurisdiction. The FCCPT evaluation report is an advisory report only, indicating the deficiencies in the educational comparison. You may choose to supplement the educational documents based upon the review and apply for a re-evaluation.
