Transforming Physical Therapist Education.

What does it take to be consistently ranked the best physical therapy program in the nation in a highly competitive field?

It takes a legacy of excellence, spanning more than 90 years. It takes the best and brightest students willing to tackle any challenge. It takes faculty who are mentors, clinical specialists, NIH-funded investigators and Catherine Worthingham Fellows of the APTA. And it takes clinical placements that allow students hands-on experience in renowned medical and rehabilitation centers, such as University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and its Centers for Rehab Services.

The success of Pitt’s PT program is fueled by a passion for moving the field forward, advancing research and creating evidence-based practice.
