The PT curriculum requires 34 months of study. Students spend two years taking courses at the Health Science Center in La Crosse before completing ten months worth of clinical internships. A Doctor of Physical Therapy will be awarded after the successful completion of the curriculum. Grades below "C" earned in any required physical therapy course are unsatisfactory and cannot be used toward a degree in physical therapy. Students not meeting this requirement will be asked to withdraw from the program. In addition, all students in UW-L graduate education must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.0.
The program admits one class each
academic year and that cohort always begins coursework in the
summer. These courses usually begin the day after Memorial
Day. We do not accept students for enrollment in either
the fall or spring semester.
