Pre-Physical Therapy

Pre-Physical Therapy Program

The CST post baccalaureate pre-physical therapy (PT) program is a full-time, structured 12-month program that provides students with the academic preparation needed to enter a PT program to become a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapy is a diverse and evolving profession with opportunities for physical therapists to specialize or become board certified in specialties such as neurology as well as to work in a wide variety of clinical and non-clinical (eg, school systems) settings.

In this program, pre-PT students attend classes that are primarily post-bacc exclusive as a cohort to maximize their learning experiences. These classes are taught by faculty from the College of Science and Technology and the Temple University Lewis Katz School of Medicine. Our program will prepare students academically for the rigors of PT programs.
