Mercer University is pleased to offer a professional program in physical therapy which awards the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree. The Program is offered on the Cecil B. Day Graduate and Professional Campus in Atlanta, Georgia.
This innovative eight-semester Program provides a comprehensive entry-level professional education, including an integrated clinical education track that consists of service-learning and clinical experiences, and three full-time clinical education courses. Mercer DPT students are actively engaged in patient/client-related activities each semester. Built upon an integrated traditional model, the DPT curriculum provides a strong foundation in basic, applied, and physical therapy science courses.
